A Single Composite

2011
A Single Composite is a series of kinetic installations and projection apparatuses that stretch, twist, and loop film strips containing declassified and other found reconnaissance footage. Using reconstituted digital printer chassis, this cinematic enterprise is projected on walls, ceilings, and floors, to form a series of individual moments of surveillance and implied violence.
"Nothing now distinguishes the function of the weapon and the eye; the projectile's image and the image's projectile form a single composite."
—Paul Virilio in "War & Cinema"
