Film projection on back wall: on left side 2 fireworks displays -one from fifties, one from today are superimposed on each other; on right is Thomas Edison’s train wreck experiment (from his 1904 film) in slow motion. Frightening visual effects evocative of effects of war. I’ve noticed lots of war-related art works lately, both in visual and performing arts.
