Boomerang is a mediation on the paradox of memorial design in a historical moment characterized
by the rapid proliferation of images of war and terror across the Internet. The video employs found
footage of amateur video produced by American soldiers and Iraqi insurgents, clips from the
Middle-Eastern news sources, and excerpts from Frieda Lee Mock's award-winning 1995
documentary, 'Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision' which is about the controverses concerning Maya
Lins Vietnam Memorial in Washington DC.
