A Prism Splits Light (excerpt)
Video for projection 8 mins 40 secs 2011
An olive grove in Cyprus is tended by a Vietnamese couple who live in a small prefab on the property. Hoa wears a traditional Vietnamese conical hat when working while her husband Tung often dresses in army fatigues. They work together amongst a typically Mediterranean landscape in springtime. On the soundtrack can be heard the variety of birdsong at that time of year along with the occasional sound of distant gunfire issuing from an army base located just over the hill.
