Looped video projection with sound in a Nissen hut, 6.50 minutes, 2005

This video projection focuses on the steady flow of bombing missions to the European theatre of operations during WW2. It refers to the portrayal of a serviceman’s heaven in a 1946 film, A Matter of Life and Death, in which a pilot bails out as his plane crashes and is torn between this world and the next. In a dream-like courtroom he argues for the right to stay alive.
