Since I began this artwork the concept of hauntology which was new to me has heavily influence my creative output – I read first about it in Stephen Prince’s book ‘A Year In The Country: Wandering Through Spectral Fields: Journeys in Otherly Pastoralism, the Further Reaches of Folk and the Parallel Worlds’ and he told me was informed of Hauntology from the writer Mark Fisher’s whose books I am consuming – firstly ‘Ghosts of my Life : Writings on Depression, Hauntology and Lost Futures’ & now ‘K-Punk’. Clearly all authors written routes are traced back to its origin from Derrida.
Hauntology – (a portmanteau of haunting and ontology) is a concept coined by philosopher Jacques Derrida in his 1993 book Spectres of Marx. The term refers to the situation of temporal, historical, and ontological disjunction in which the apparent presence of being is replaced by a deferred non-origin, represented by “the figure of the ghost as that which is neither present, nor absent, neither dead nor alive.”

I will show the development of my idea to bring back lost landmarks implementing a bespoke app I designed that runs on smart phones capable of ‘augmented reality’
It raises questions around gentrification and preserving heritage through digital art whilst also giving an enriched experience through surreal time travelling sound scapes for each site

‘Apparitions‘ is a new augmented reality art project that reveals the
ghosts of historic Edwardian landmarks in Hastings (The Memorial
clocktower), St Leonards (The Pier) & Bexhill (beach huts) evoking a
nostalgia for lost futures.
I will give a talk at 5.15pm (£3 donation to OHPS on door) about the memories uncovered in the work and how it developed followed by assisted demonstrations on our equipment for everyone. Do bring your iPads and iPhones too as we can show you how to download, install and navigate the art experience. Heres the facebook event page
