The photos we chose portrayed the destruction and pain of the aftermath caused by the columbine high school massacre vividly. As a group of three, we depicted the parents of a victim of the massacre at their child's grave. I played the role of the father in this freeze-frame. As a group, we felt that contrasting facial expressions would best portray the image dramatically. Whilst the victim displayed an extremely neutral facial expression, connoting his lifeless nature and removal from the continued existence of the community, my facial expression was purposefully tense in order to demonstrate the pain and loss my character was experiencing. Furthermore, both my face and the character of the mother’s were faced downwards and away from the surroundings, deliberately concealed, highlighting the concentration of the two characters in blocking out external stimuli in order to focus on pure emotion.

In the field of video art, there are many well-known works that the people have come to love. But one piece that strays away from the norm is “Clown Torture” by Bruce Nauman.

Early in the year of 1976, a corporation known as Crown Center Redevelopment started a project to design and construct a Hyatt Regency Hotel in Kansas City, Missouri.
