Video (6:29) : Secret Atomic Research – Orford Ness “Over The Horizon” (2004) by Poulomi Desai. Published by Usurp in 2010.
Usurp: ‘In the cold autumn of 2004, artist Poulomi Desai (Usurp Art), visited Orford Ness, a once top secret military testing base abandoned in the 1980s and now a protected nature reserve with a precious shingle eco-system. A series of large-scale photographs, field recordings and this video are among the artworks created by Poulomi Desai. The ghostly musical tones heard in this location recording are created by wind swirling across and through metal structures – no manipulation has been used.’
