"Bangwallop is Crash crashed" - Captain Ocean
As part of the Crash exhibition at Gagosian Gallery in 2010, Jake and Dinos Chapman subverted the original text by J.G.Ballard. Running the script though a computer and generating a corrupted crashed file. They have produced this quasi novel-come-artwork as an editioned paper back.
In this hallucinatory novel, an automobile provides the hellish tableau in which Vaughan, a 'TV Scientist' turned 'nightmare angel of the highways,' experiments with erotic atrocities among auto crash victims, deliriously spiralling in and out of phase, merging fiction and theory, and combining a file-corrupting literature machine that contracts and expands without final cause.
