The Hard And The Fast - Cover

The Hard and the Fast

The publication is in part an archival document to a Situationist Intervention that took place sometime during the summer months of 1997 – an intervention with specific interior / exterior locations within the centre of London. This artistic/political gesture was carried out during a long-running political debate over the obtrusive and ever growing number of CCTV surveillance cameras being installed within public spaces within the capital, which were disputed as an infringement upon rights to privacy of the individual citizen.
These interventions were an endeavour to integrate an applied form that would, over a period of time, become part of the structure it had been applied to. And, by incorporating a mock prosthesis to such public spaces, would endeavour to claim part of a specific public space, which would represent a specific moment frozen in time.
