‘Damocles’ is an interactive installation. Using sound and images, it critiques the dangers of war and nuclear weapons from the perspective of a post-nuclear war survivor. Located in Shoreditch, East London, this project seeks to inspire more young millennials to think about the world they will live in.
Many people talk about nuclear war like they do about dinosaurs a relic from the past. Data shows how millennials are nervous about their future, with most believing there will be a third world war in their lifetime and more than half believing nuclear weapons could be used somewhere in the world in the next 10 years. The peace of our time has been hard won and short lived. ‘Damocles’ engages the visitor directly with the perils of the nuclear threat and the benefits pf a peaceful society.
