Nuclear Warfare and Defectors are my favorites. People around here (Iowa) talk about the 'crazy North Koreans', but in my mind it's unfair to generalize the situation like that. The government of a country is the entity that makes decisions, and those civilians have to do what they're told and follow laws set out by the government, just like we do. You did a nice job of portraying it, I think.

thank you, this is exactly what i'm trying to get across with this project. i get so angry when i hear "ahh, just nuke 'em!" excuse me, but there are 23 million people there who know nothing but what information the government feeds them. i don't know if you've looked into what their propaganda looks like, but it's pretty crazy. i put together a book of it (along side my own work) to accompany this project, as well as a projection featuring clips of the troops marching from a documentary. if you were being told the things they are being told, you'd be at constant war with the rest of the world as well.

thanks to everyone else, too!

Disconcerting. Very powerful. Wonderful work, it surely will not fail to illicit emotional reactions while on display. I hope you have a place for people to write to you so you can read it back at the end of the show. Really, powerful images.
