Untitled Fragments Trailer (2017)
08 February 2017 75 mins
The 3-channel video installation UNTITLED FRAGMENTS brings together four histories: the 1860s scorched earth policy of Kit Carson used to drive out the Navajos from their homeland in Canyon de Chelly, the 1967 execution of Che Guevara in Bolivia, the 1972 carpet bombing of Hanoi, and the 2016 Cedar Fire in the California Sierras. The radio transmission is from a US Air Force B-52 (Stratofortress Bomber, code name Lilac 02) recorded on the evening of December 26, 1972 during which 116 B-52s attacked Hanoi and Haiphong dropping all of their bombs within 15 minutes. The recording was declassified in 2016. The installation is part of a larger project that further includes paintings, drawings, serigraphs, tapestries, film loops, and historical objects
