Donovan Wylie: The Tower Series

Text by Donovan Wylie.

Donovan Wylie's The Tower Series, now available as a complete set in a custom cardboard box, reveals the repetitive character of military conflict across diverse geographies and histories. The first book in the series is British Watchtowers (2007), which studies the lines of sight from surveillance posts along the Irish border, and reveals a kind of virtual environment that enveloped the border region of Northern Ireland. These towers, constructed in the mid-1980s primarily in the mountainous border region of South Armagh, were landmarks in a 30-year conflict in and over Northern Ireland. The second book, Outposts (2011), charts NATO observation posts in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan. Built on natural promontories with multiple lines of sight, these outposts formed a protective visual architecture and were frequently positioned on defense locations established during earlier conflicts. North Warning System draws a close to his Tower Series. Surveying a radar station just inside the Canadian Arctic, Wylie examines the detection of invisible threats through unmanned observation posts in remote regions.
PRAISE AND REVIEWS

American Suburb X

Eugenie Shinkle

The photographs in The Tower Series are about what canít be seen, and about the paranoia, loneliness, and isolation that haunt our efforts to see it.
