The objective of this artwork will be to raise issues with the representation of historical figures in mainstream film and the misassociation many viewers have between entertainment and history. For many viewers, film is their only exposure to certain historical topics and even more so their only visual access to much of (pre-photography) history. The goal of this artwork is both to engage in a dialog on representation in a visual arts context as well as a historical context. I want to audience to have a reawakened sense of inquisitiveness about the truth of the historical representations they are experiencing while watching film and television.
