Challenging my ideas on American history and cultural theory, I invested time in researching contemporary historical events, with a particular focus on John F. Kennedy's assassination. My interest in the relation between perception of historical knowledge and spatial and architectural memory led me to investigate how artists, scientists, and conspiracy theorists have attempted to solve the social, historical and political drama surrounding the assassination. My animation piece focused on the socially and politically charged location of the assassination, the Dealey Plaza, and its potential to reveal how society digests and personalizes historical and political information through the distorting lens of mass media, education and political propaganda.
