Kiska and Adak - War on the Tundra

Abstract

Field research has shown that the World War II landscape of Kiska (Aleutians, Alaska) is a multi-layered historic text of global significance that encapsulates a bitter struggle for the control of the North Pacific. The digital triptych Scars of the Tundra anchors the exhibition. Read superficially, it narrates aspects of the struggle. The subtext gives even billing to both sides and highlights the futility of war, where there is no winner. These messages are amplified by the 36 art photographs surrounding the triptych.
