Last Meal Requested

Sachiko Hayashi

The interactive video Last Meal Requested looks at different kinds of violence in recent history. The piece focuses on three incidents over a period of thirteen years: the Halabja massacre in 1988, the Rodney King beating in 1992, and the public execution of a woman in Taliban-Afghanistan in 2001. Images from these three incidents are mixed with different narratives and archival footage from other brutal historic acts. These images and stories present personal perspectives on the broader social conditions surrounding these acts of violence.
