Vaporized Vandalistic Voyeurism

Scarred and scarce through US militarization, the erasure of Bikini Atoll has been fetishized to progress the perversion of Western advancement. Through notions of homage, the current proposal aims at revitalizing the lost connection between the land and the descendants of Bikini Atoll. Governed by a ritual, the journey starts at sunrise and ends at sunset, paying its respect to honor all the land that has suffered as a casualty of war not frequently counted for. A series of 3 shrines weave a network to provide spaces of grief, contemplation, and production. At the end of the journey, cutting through the darkness of night, stars gleam with constellations their ancestors used to navigate as they navigate from the motherland.
