Ghost Shelters (2016)

5 min 29 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

Using drone-mounted cameras and 3D modelling, Ghost Shelters maps a series of ‘abject monuments’ in Germany and the United States including Teufelsberg, the defunct Allied listening post built on a hill of rubble in Grünewald, Berlin; Albert Speer’s test drum (a giant concrete cylinder which was a prototype stanchion for a huge causeway leading to Germania, Hitler’s reimagined Berlin), Cinderella’s Castle at Disney World (modeled on Neuschwanstein, a late nineteenth-century gothic revival stately home in Southern Germany) and the entrance to Birkenau Concentration Camp.
