"The Mustard Gas Phantasies of Wilfred Owen" is a visual and allegorical experiment, a chimeric mixture of historical and fictional elements centering on the most renown of the World War I British "trench poets." The images represent the fevered hallucinations that haunted Owen as he died exactly one week before the signing of the Armistice on Nov 11, 1918 -- the moment when the poetic sentiment and progressive optimism of the nineteenth century was transformed into the nightmarish, mechanized, and masterminded world of the twentieth century. This project is the latest iteration of Hilton's interests in history, narrative, and the mythologizing capacity of art.
