BLAST-UP is an interactive installation that revisits, recreates and updates the ambivalent British response to continental avant-garde intrusions of the early twentieth century. A cross between Vorticist manifesto and retro shoot-em-up, it combines playful techniques from contemporary digital poetry with insights from the study of early twentieth century modernist literature. Its aim is to educate users, through their participation in the game, in the spirit and products of compromised and quintessentially British responses to iconoclasm in European arts and culture.
