Event Details

Artist Su Rynard’s correspondence with her uncle, Vernon Rowley, inspired As Soon As Weather Will Permit—the haunting and disquieting story of one soldier’s participation in the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan, on August 6, 1945. This two-channel video combines their verbal and written exchanges with family archives, historical footage evoking nuclear warfare, and stark landscapes of the Utah airfield and bombing range where Air Force radar operator Rowley trained for the atomic mission by the US government. Threading these disparate audiovisual elements together, Rynard reconciles one person’s conflicted recollection with the collective memory of a dramatic and violent historic event.

The artist gratefully acknowledges the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
