Double Vision: Fort Gorges, Casco Bay, Maine
A collaboration with Yulia Pinkusevich and Francois Hughes, Double Vision explores the Cold War history of the Nike Missile Program in the US and its counterparts in the USSR. Double Vision was first developed for a low-power FM installation in the Bay Area’s Marin Headlands, which is home to the Nike Missile Battery, part of a nationwide nuclear missile defense system active from 1951 to 1972. The ongoing project gathers materials from former Nike veterans and archives to create interactive experiences using low power FM transmission and video installation at a variety of former military sites.
For A Long Wait, curated by Erin Johnson, Double Vision was installed at an abandoned military fort off the shore of Portland, Maine. Visitors to the installation traveled by boat to the fort. An accompanying artist book was published by Orbis Editions.
