These first two are unfinished pieces, I'm not exactly sure what the final form would be... probably videos, possibly composited onto a new backgrounds. I think of them as abstract sculpture....or at least relating to my early abstract sculpture work and a body of drawings that references these arrangements of aircraft only using schematics.
These next two are essentially done, but I think they would need to be rapid-prototyped (and possibly recast in metal or resin) so that the objects really existed in space as artifacts of videogame warfare

a video inspired by classic video games and the writings of Eyal Weizman ( http://www.flexmens.org/drupal/?q=the_art_of_war ). Here the piece is a sketch for now. Technical and formal issues need resolved, as does the text. The final version will still use the Escher architectural layout but be simplified to remove his figures and other details
