Joe Ryan created the design/animation. Patrick Phelan composed and performed the music. Elizabeth Wlodarczak provided the voice.
They Had Names is one of the works from The Cluster Project (theclusterproject.com), an ongoing web gallery and blog that uses multimedia artworks to explore weapons, war, civilian casualties and pop culture.
