A melancholic urban archaeologist, Melbourne’s Callum Morton explores the personal and social impact of architecture and the built environment. This book surveys twenty years of his work, from his early drawings of fires and explosions in housing-commission flats to his bullet-holed screens, awnings and monuments that memorialise outdated forms of capitalism and modernity. Morton’s ambiguous, ambivalent works make us ponder the relationship between art and life, and history and the present, and reconsider ubiquitous structures we see but rarely notice.
