Redacted is a collaborative installation addressing the ways in which the contemporary U.S. public is alienated from and engaged with U.S. interventions in South East Asia. The works are appropriations and manipulations of mediated images from the Department of Defense’s Youtube channel. Images of real warfare paired with humorous ACDC, Call of Duty, and redacted Tweets points to the societal effects of the military industrial complex. Immersed in the installation’s large prints, zines, video installation, and internet ready-made, the viewer places themselves in the position of spectator, supporter, and imperialist actor. This project relates to my proposal in its use of installation as a space for critical conversation. Redacted is meant to be experienced in a dark room.
