Destruction Demolition Deconstruction

  1. Shot in Saddam Hussein's hilltop palace in the mountains overlooking the River Tigris, Theatre of War is a slow, virtually static video piece redolent of classical history painting. Audio was recorded at the official US military hand-over ceremony at the nearby city of Saniya. A mullah's prayer for unity among Arabs is spoken, after which the pan-Arab national anthem, Mawtini (My Homeland) is played, emphasizing Arab national solidarity and a pan-Arab territory. Made in Iraq in March 2009.

    Cinematography and Editing by Trevor Tweeten

    Digital Color and Post Production by Jerome Thelia

  4. A Site-Specific Interventional Installation in Shanghai. 2006.
    Groups of people from the city were gathered to the Jiangbian(Riverside) Ferry, Puxi, at 5pm, 2Jun, 2006. Crossed Huangpu River, three-minute walk from the waterfront to a clearing site, it was 5:30 at the summer dusk. Standing on a broken ground people were watching at this particular patina building glow in the dimming skylight. It was very the last dinner for the only and last family holding on the top floor, who moved out the next day before this building tore down to a clean site to host the upcoming Shanghai World Expo 2010—in 1,429 single day.
