The landscape of Monument Valley, Arizona, recognizable from its frequent use as a backdrop in western movies, TV commercials, magazines ads and postcards, is explored in the first person singular by the video camera-eye. It is inscribed with another set of "media-saturated" images: footage from the Apollo moon shots. A multi-layered voice/audio track mediates these two territories of image recognition, narrating and locating them in mythic past of public and private memory. There - and only there - can the experience of these places and events be re-entered and authenticated.
