Now Instant Image Hall presents 13BC's FATAL ACT: an epistolary moving image work that concerns the legacy of the atomic in the 20th and 21st centuries. It is structured around letters written between Claude Eatherly, the weather pilot whose "all clear" report enabled the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, and Günther Anders, the German theorist whose work fixated on technology's capacity to outpace any human intention. Beginning with the letters' mention of an unrealized Bob Hope movie about Eatherly, Fatal Act passes through prop closets and desert test sites, Foley effects studios and Geiger counter readouts, Hollywood sets and military hospitals in order to consider the ways we attempt to give image to what refuses to be seen.
