A memory of trauma or intensity can indelibly mark an individual for their entire life. If this memory is collectively shared by whole populations, can it start to shape our perception of landscape, environment and society? Stephen Felmingham’s current work engages with the Cold War era and its hidden networks of bunkers and installations, bringing to light aspects of culture that have been changed by a conflict experienced by two generations in Europe and America.
