My place is your place… – I was here
The character in TREASURE builds a new city while searching for water by the salty seaside. Eerie sound and composite images of Hoover Dam, Las Vegas Nevada and Indian petroglyphs found alongside defunct water springs present an ominous mood.
Dam projects in the American West disrupted the communal life of Native Americans and other peoples by forcing dislocation upon families who knew no other way of life. Other consequences include destruction of their land and submersion of ancient rock art carvings of religious and archeological interest.
Hoover Dam, located outside Las Vegas Nevada, was developed to supply hydroelectricity for Arizona, Nevada and California, including the city of Los Angeles, and its surrounding areas.
