While being used in gun fights, ambushes and structures bombing, the night vision equipment intended for finding targets and documenting their destruction becomes a tool for the soldiers to document their daily activities with. Dancing on watch duty, funny tricks, team parties, sex activities etc., everything is documented. The military equipment the soldiers use for fighting is now an entertainment documentary tool which captures the soldiers’ experiences.
The work is comprised of materials collected from various web sites, using multichannel editing that brings to mind a control screen of modern security systems. Alongside the soldiers’ bonding activities, the work also features military operational activities, one of which captures the targeting and shooting of a group of photographers and civilians in Baghdad, after their cameras were mistaken for weapons.
The work addresses the way we watch war events today, like a non emotional Hollywood set, showing the easiness of pressing the trigger, the photographic YouTube trigger, and the real trigger, the one that kills.
