Welcome to the Nuclear Information Centre

What do you need to know?

Part open-ended research project, part nomadic visitor centre, the Nuclear Information Centre (NIC) is a fictional, quasi-official sounding organisation established in 2022 by self-appointed artist in residence, Nic Pehkonen. Predominantly focussed on interrogating the UK’s present day nuclear activities through publicly available informational channels, the NIC also draws on past and future to explore often intertwined themes of power, technology, weapons and waste.

The Nuclear Information Centre is a space where official and unofficial informational boundaries are intentionally blurred, fact and fiction become actively entangled and questions of ambiguity, selectivity and trust are tacitly raised.

To what extent do you trust the Nuclear Information Centre?

What else do you need to know?

Although transparency and openess is not something we might automatically associate with nuclear industries, the NIC welcomes critically constructive feedback and collaborative proposals. Please contact Nic in the first instance through Nuclear Information Centre enquiries
