J.G.Ballard on Sensation

J.G. Bal­lard, the author of Crash and Empire died at 78 this week­end. Here we have a short inter­view from 1986 where he talks about how vio­lent sen­sa­tions now lubri­cate our mod­ern world. It’s this line of think­ing that finds its way into Crash, a con­tro­ver­sial book that David Cro­nen­berg brought to the big screen in 1996.
