This dissertation examines the transformation of site as traumatic memory from the physical to the virtual environment through history, cultural identity, and geopolitics. The practices of Shimon Attie, Whitfield Lovell, and Imran Qureshi, differ visually and thematically, although all focus on representing cultural identity. The chosen installations probe traumatic memory using site as geographic location, archetype, and tableau to activate the relationship between cultural identity and their ephemeral, immersive installations, all of which remain today through documentation. The transformation of site-specificity, through three distinct representational models, explores different means of societal impact and significance on a micro to macro scale.
