The installation deals with the colonization of the Hudson River, its conquest and mapping by European explorers and colonists, as well as the accompanying obliteration of the native culture. The 40-minute film visually follows the course of the Hudson River from an aerial perspective while the voiceover juxtaposes the technologies of power an cartography with the possibili­ties and impossibilities of historical narration.
