Tape also includes END IN NEW WORLD (2004) 2 min. LET ME COUNT THE WAYS ... inaugurates a new serial work by Leslie Thornton. As in her recently completed Peggy and Fred series, Thornton explores the social effects of new technologies and media, but here she pushes even further into autobiographical territory to suggest the ways in which we are all implicated in these changes. Juxtaposing aerial military footage; scientific data on genetic mutation; audio testimony about the bombing of Hiroshima, and a home movie of her father, a World War II Air Force pilot, as he is dispatched to that city, Thornton creates a dense and compelling meditation on violence.
