The End Of The World
In Collaboration With Shoreditch House
The End Is Nigh.
In collaboration with Shoreditch House we hosted a party to see in The End Of The World with a group of Central Saint Martins’ graduates.
The collective body of work presented a self-portrait of where society was at, a screenshot of the world heading towards its final hours – displayed across varying mediums the night showcased a mixture of performance and video installations throughout the evening.
Stacks of TVs formed a digital sculpture presenting popular images and footage from the internet. If this was the end, what would our best bits be? What are watching and what are we making?
We also projected live footage of CCTV feeds from empty corridors and offices across London displaying a world that had already left and we hung motivational ‘End Of The World’ posters on the walls featuring the words of JG Ballard.

Merchandise & Time Capsules.
A time capsule took the shape of a fanzine. This was an image archive of objects we felt had drastically impacted our course on the world. A mobile phone. Headphones. The pill. A visual guide as to how we got here.
We sold t-shirts stating – I was here at The End Of The World –> S P A C E C R A F T.
End of The World Speach.
If the world were to end tomorrow the government have a speech they would broadcast over all communication channels. We wrote our own version of what we thought that End Of The World speech might be, which we had performed by various artists throughout the evening. Apocalyptic bands and DJs kept people dancing right to the end… turns out it’s much more fun with friends.
