Moon Hearted view of the world.
The nuclear is the apotheosis of simulation. Yet the balance of terror is nothing more than the spectacular slope of a system of deterrence that has crept from the inside into all the cracks of daily life. The nuclear cliff-hanger only seals the trivialised system of deterrence at the heart of the media, of the inconsequential violence that reigns throughout the world, of the aleatory contrivance of every choice which is made for us.

For a hundred years or more the world, our world, has been dying. And not one man, in these last hundred years or so, has been crazy enough to put a bomb up the asshole of creation and set it off. The world is rotting away, dying piecemeal. But it needs the coup de grace, it needs to be blown to smithereens. Not one of us is intact, and yet we have in us all the continents and the seas between the continents and the birds of the air. We are going to put it down — the evolution of this world which has died but which has not been buried. (H.M.)3 hearts

Yes, it is attraction and anger, a superfluous nightmare in the antechamber of a technocratic hell.
It’s the non-showing of a rapid eucharist of objects and consumptions. Paints the body as a whole metropolis inhabited by infinite “ourselves”, with streets and buildings made of bones, flesh, lust and rust.
At the edge of this “civilization”, imaginary ideograms burn like scaldings, rousing a desired (and already experienced) violence.
If this cruelty is more than a refined re-presentation, are we the involuntary guardians of our own fetishism towards “progress”? Or are we magnifying glasses that mystify, enlarging them, devastated sections of our living organisms and digital extensions?
The answer is: the mechanical apocalypse is yesterday.
Today, for the death or the latest smartphone model, there’s nothing else to do but lie down.

Nick Ballon is a photographer based in London, an observer par excellence. With an underlying, yet gently satirical sense of humour, his documentary photography is as carefully considered as he is as a person. His portraits are wonderfully to the point, allowing his subjects to flourish in his frame, whilst his landscapes convey a poetic and timeless sense of space.
