PSYCHO GEOLOGY, explores a fictional sequence of events based on certain socio-economical, geological and cultural elements that have made west Cornwall the place that it is. This publication supports Fox's latest body of work presenting a science fictional depiction of the past, one that references the colloquial approach to archiving areas of Neolithic Heritage; west Cornwall’s unique geological makeup and its sprawling industrial scars. A fictional story centres around Cornwall's unusually high levels of radon gas, and how this scientific anomaly acts as a catalyst for new and unusual behaviours. In Neolithic times this resulted in stone circles and the embryonic cultivation of rituals that have since developed into folklore, while in the Post-industrial era it led to the birth of surf culture, which can be seen as Cornish futurism in reality.
