With Sand Creek Equation, Travis Wilkerson (An Injury to One, 2002 Who Killed Cock Robin? 2005) employs a deceptively poetic style to suggest some terrible parallels link the 2008/9 war on the Gaza Strip to the 1864 massacre of Native Americans at Sand Creek, Colorado.

Wilkerson is a US based political auteur, whose many genre defying and award winning works include Accelerated Under�Development: In the Idiom of Santiago Alvarez, his portrait of (and homage to) the great radical Cuban film maker Santiago Alvarez. Other recent works at the limits of radical politics and experimental art include his multimedia performance project �Proving Ground�, combining texts, live music, films, imagery, and audio files to explore the development of bombs, bombing technologies, and their corresponding aesthetics. Sand Creek Equation is his first work directly related to Palestine.
