In the Summer 2010 a group of six artists who barely knew each other embarked on a journey to Chernobyl, to develop a secretive Plan C. They came from different parts of Europe and the US, and met-up at a random apartment in the suburbs of Kyev, Ukraine. The one thing they had in common: an obsession for Tarkovsky’s 1979 movie Stalker.
The Chernobyl Zone of Alienation Administration—responsible for the protection of this highly radioactive area—issued the group’s authorization which included: Ryan Doyle, “The Machine Artist”; Eve and Franco Mattes aka 0100101110101101.ORG, “The Conspirators”; Jeff Stark, “The Organizer”; Todd Chandler, “The Director”; Tod Seelle, “The Photographer”; and Steve Valdez, “The Fabricator.”
While details on the mission remain sealed, images can be viewed at Plan C.
