BLOCKBUSTER BOMBS

Blockbuster Bombs documentation with audience reaction

Blockbuster Bombs is a guerrilla interactive video I created in the weeks leading up to the Iraq War. I ran Blockbuster Bombs nomadically from the trunk of a car, pulling over at various spots in Atlanta and projecting an interactive video of a live feed of the local street scene with the sky keyed out and replaced with footage of falling bombs from the 1991 Operation Desert Storm. I ended the evening by projecting the piece on the side of a Blockbuster Video outlet to highlight issues of spectatorship. The piece instigated immediate public discourse about the impending war, some of which I captured in the video.
