“This book documents three projects which deal with the Provisional Irish Republican Army’s decommissioning process of 2005 and the subsequent reporting by the media, political parties and concerned individuals, with special attention to the language used. I wanted to make a body of work on this subject for two reasons: that these historical events, such as IRA cease-fires, were being immediately played out live on television and in the media, and that the Northern IrelandĀ Peace Process was not particularly high on the list of popular subjects for artists of my generation, especially in the Republic.”
