Abstract

TRANSITION is an installation of films that engages the histories of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to the meltdown of Fukushima Daiichi in 2011—it is an attempt to bridge the gap of nuclear issues that are still present today. I redirect found images from their institutional contexts to reposition them as a dialogue between the archival and my own footage. All histories are told through media, and all mediations are remediation of the event. Histories are never fixed, but are constantly reproduced by different groups who are involved. The past and the present must always be interconnected, contesting the importance to understand the fluidity and intersectionality of histories.
