The project examines the Vietnam War and its visual representation in popular culture and mainstream media. The research behind the installation focuses on the Gulf of Tonkin incident; the alleged attack by three North Vietnamese torpedo boats on the American warship the USS Maddox on August 2, 1964. 

The installation refers to the act of looking and all that it entails. Whether we look closely or from a distance; with a filter or in layers; in fragments or as presented within a given frame. Whatever choice of looking we end up with, it is in the act of having to look again that I am interested.

Gemma Padley wrote for The Telegraph a brief response to the installation.
