The Haunted Generation – “Felt Trips”

Bob Fischer’s The Haunted Generation – both his blog and monthly article for Fortean Times – is required reading for anyone interested in the whole arena of hauntology & creepily “wrong” nostalgia.

One of his current strands is “Felt Trips“, unearthing artworks created by kids in the 70s and 80s. Some of these are homages to existing cultural artefacts (Dr. Who, Star Wars); others may be the child’s original creation, or a piece of schoolwork rescued from the ages. There’s a vague creepiness to some, part of which is a marriage of subject matter, naivety and the distance of age. Some are more creepy than others.

His latest post very kindly features my own contribution, so I highly recommend you visit it right now.
