Regrann from @the_edgeworker - Victoria J Dean's 'The Illusion of Purpose' – Now #AvailableFromEdgework
This intriguing collection of photographs by Victoria J Dean of anonymous obelisks, columns, and cairn-like sculptural forms in various states of repair, offers us no explanation of their intended purpose and keeps quiet their precise locations. Instead, they ignite our curiosity. What connects them? Some are situated on the very edge of the land, looking out to sea but it is unclear if they all are. One is a pillbox, another looks like the entrance to a decommissioned underground monitoring post – are others waymarkers, beacons, memorials, landmarks, or part of some kind of abandoned defence infrastructure? Can you get inside? Is there anything underneath?
