‘Childhood’s End’ documents the conception and execution of the film installation of the same name by artists Mathew Cornford and David Cross. With the assistance of a military fighter jet (to which a film camera was attached) piloted by a retired Air Vice-Marshal, Cornford & Cross produced a film of the jet describing an ‘anarchy’ symbol in the skies above Cranfield airbase in Bedfordshire. This large format publication, illustrated throughout with colour and black and white photographs, includes an extensive interview with the artists about the piece and its relation to their earlier projects.
