His Memory, Like the World’s, Was Getting Spotty
Dyptich: Two C-Prints
each 24″ x 30″
This work is a juxtaposition of two war related signifiers:
1) A declassified war document from July 1945 instructing the use of a “special bomb” upon Japanese sites along with correlating surveillance of the bombing for military and civilian research purposes
2) A camouflage pattern taken from a Berlin subway train, with coloration inspired by the United States national flag.
Coupled together, the images convey a U.S. military narrative of concealment.
