Description:

In my presentation to the conference Sexuate Subjects: Politics, Poetics and Ethics I introduced some of the rich visual and theoretical material that has influenced and inspired my latest body of photographic and moving image work. In addition to other contemporary artists and filmmakers, I referred to a range of historic and archival material that has informed the work from the earliest experiments in photographic reconnaissance to the prominent role digital technology, aerial photography and satellite imagery now occupy in modern warfare. I touched on the related disciplines of forensic anthropology and archaeology and showed documentation from a number of site visits to locations in the US and the Middle East carried out during the development of the work.
