Spectral Shores: vanishing places and haunted spaces. Coastal Erosion and its effect on perceptions of time and the cultural construction of coastal landscapes

Spectral Shores is a practice-led research project that investigates visual representations of coastal erosion on the North Norfolk coast, the concerns presented by climate change for this process, and how people navigate and occupy these fluctuating spaces. These representations and meanings are addressed using a range of critical perspectives, including those relating to horror and science fiction.

The project uses still and moving image, as well as writing, alongside AR or games design engines to create a fragmented narrative of this fluctuating space in order to evoke an idea of cosmic horror that may be sensed but not easily described in these coastal spaces.
