Présentation de la communication

Ruins in their decay speak to us of passing time and of mortality; but they also expose unfamiliar dynamics of temporality.

But why the current day ruinenlust?

And why the current interest in modern ruins?

This paper will examine the contemporising effects of the modern ruin by focussing on a relationship between film and ruin at the decaying 1960s St Peter’s Seminary building at Cardross in Scotland.
