Nuke 'Em, Duke (2010) / Digital Video / 04:00
The Conqueror (1956) starred John Wayne as Genghis Khan. Principal photography took place downwind from a nuclear testing site and close to half the cast & crew subsequently developed cancer, including "The Duke" himself. This video is a reinterpretation of the film, looking at "conquest" in past and present media, fiction and non-fiction, and the "compression" of these experiences into mediated forms.
