- Forgetting Viet Nam
- Images unfold spatially as a dialogue between the two elements--land and water--that underlie the formation of the term "country." Carrying the histories of both visual technology and Vietnam's political reality, these images are also meant to feature the encounter between the ancient as related to the solid earth, and the new as related to the liquid changes in a time of rapid globalization. These elements combine to form what local inhabitants, immigrants and veterans remember of yesterday's stories to comment on today's events. Through the insights of these witnesses to one of America's most divisive wars, Vietnam's specter and her contributions to world history remain both present and all too easy to forget--Adapted from information on container.
