In MCGUNNER05 (2022), footage of Saddam Hussein’s residence is captured by US soldier McGunner05, and displayed side by side, exploring the notion of "aufben" or "doubling".

"While in letting things say themselves, we rest in them, while we let things say themselves….and while yet even in the establishing of facts we meet with a doubling which to some extent arises from the things themselves, in the process of intending we go from ourselves toward things. We do not thereby have a dead image of something, but we are dealing, with a living movement toward what is intended (see PG 107; PI-455-6; PG 98; PG109)."
