"[This piece] visits Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands, the site of a devastating battle during World War II. On one level, the video is an evocation of past horror, which is seen in fragmentary documentary footage and recalled in interviews with American and Japanese veterans and Solomon Islanders. Synthesized through Paik's postproduction mix, the manipulation of memories, fragments, visual and auditory representations, and sites of devastation, becomes, on another level, a struggle to locate and convey experiential truths"--J.G.
