Bomber, a chance unwinding (2011)
BOMBER, A CHANCE UNWINDING bears witness to a remote mountaintop World War II bomber crash site, combining poetry and visual images collaged from archival film footage, maps, in situ color photographs and text. It is both elegy and metaphor, a meditation on war and the associated loss of life and environmental destruction. An installation was first presented in Madison, WI, 2011, and is now touring. An accompanying chapbook, 'Bomber, a chance unwinding' (Areness Press/ via Blurb.com)* was authored and designed by Lewis Koch. It was selected by curator Barbara Tannenbaum for the foundational exhibition "DIY: Photographers & Books", at the Cleveland Museum of Art (2012).
