This audio clip is a collaged landscape that was formed from the cutting and pasting of materials that standing alone would have one tone, but broken down and repurposed have taken on a new meaning and identity.

This work was created in response to experiencing the Challenger disaster as a young elementary school student. I recall through the audio clip what it was like to watch the disaster in a darkened room full of school students, listening to the response of the teachers and students. I also recall how my father told a story at dinner the night of the event and how the teacher killed could have been him as he was one of the applicants for the position, a story that has never left me. So in more than one way, I am personally connected to this disaster. The art book is a compilation of the audio transcript from the pilot and commander of the Challenger as the events unfolded, from pre launch to loss of data. It reads from left to right as the audio clip plays through.
