by James SCHNEIDER
2007 / 16mm / color / sound / 1S / 3' 00

For Government Radiation, the first step was to film the US Capitol on 100 feet of 16mm film (Kodak-7205, 250 ASA). Then, Using a process similar to Shroud of Security, the film was cut into 6 equal parts and passed through Government security X-Ray machines in Washington DC: 0, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, and 128 times. The result is a gradual effacing of the image.
Sound by Violet (aka Jeff Surak).
