Mixed Media Reflections on heroism
By Chantha Kong and Tim Robertson
We are interested in Heroism – both the public perception and the less tangible impact on broader society – to explore this we chose to portray 11 well-known Cambodians who inspire us.
We portrayed them in the empty spaces of everyday scenes – outside their specific field of work and influence because we believe that through their words, actions, lives, these people have not only contributed and inspired within those spheres but have changed the fabric of society and the historical atmosphere in the which we live, while paying homage to them. We also hope to move the viewer toward considering the questions.
