Finding Form, Veterans Affairs Medical Center, La Jolla, CA, projected found photographs, June 2, 2007

An "erasure" performance whereby I projected a live video feed of a performance onto the surface of the Veteran's Affairs hospital. The showed my hands removing the backgrounds from historical images of soldiers trained during WWII on the site of the hospital itself. The larger-than-life projections reference the iconic and heroic image of the soldier on the site of the ultimate result of that labor. Other evidence
