Jane and Louise Wilson

British artists born 1967, identical twins who do all their work together. They make strange videos and some of their work is collages doctored in ways I don't really get. But at its heart is stark images of what has been left behind by modern history: World War II, the Cold War, the Space Race. Above, Casement H-667, part of Hitler's Atlantic Wall.


Mir Space Station Service Module, 2000.

Atomgrad, the USSR's abandoned "Atomic City".

Still from Undead Sun, their film about the remains of the efforts to make the first hydrogen bombs.
