> > LAST MEAL REQUESTED
> > http://www.e-garde.com/lmr
> > net art, 2003, flash player required
> > Last Meal Requested investigates our human history through three
>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
>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
>behaviours within the context of complexities formed by our history and
>society: how our past affects our present, finds its way into the
>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."
