> NEW RELEASE:
> LAST MEAL REQUESTED
> net art, 2003, flash player required
> Last Meal Requested investigates our human history through three incidents
of the last 15 years - the Halabja massacre of 1988, the beating-up of
Rodney King in 1992, and the public execution of a woman in
Taliban-Afghanistan in 2001. The images from these three incidents are put
under the light of historical context, thus juxtaposing our present with our
past. At the same time the voices taken from various documentaries
intermingle with them, offering personal perspectives on those social
conditions. By so doing, Last Meal Requested plays with two poles on two
different levels - the past/ the present, the society/ the individual.
> My interest in creating Last Meal Requested has been to address our human
behaviours within the context of complexities formed by our history and
society: how our past affects our present, finds its way into the individual
minds that together form society, which eventually succeeds in the fatal
destruction of individual human beings.
> The title is a citation taken from "Made in the USA", a documentary film
by Solveig Anspach and Cindy Babski about an Afro-American by the name of
Odell Barnes, who was wrongfully executed in Texas 2000. The last meal he
requested was "Justice, Equality and World Peace."
