The Dissolution of Remnant and Reality
Central Vietnam. Here passes through the Ho Chi Minh Trail that provided support to the Viet Cong and the People's Army of Vietnam during the Vietnam War. Quảng Trị and Thừa Thiên Provinces were subjected to extensive bombing and chemical sprayings, having catastrophic effects to the local ecology. The landscape has constantly shifted in appearance at the hands of agriculture and industry offering a longstanding example of human intervention and the 'cultural landscape'. Vietnam is still carrying out efforts to rid the landscape of unexploded ordnance and defoliant rich soil. These remnants of war are sewn in to the Earth, affecting locals today. This project uses the landscape to subtly suggest a clandestine form of state control over Vietnam's landscape.
