UAV for Scott
Captain Scott Swanson,
Welcome to operation UAV SOP BTW DTF 2.8
Objective: getting to know each other
YOU ARE ABOUT TO COME INTO CONTACT WITH SOMEONE YOU DO NOT KNOW. LISTEN CAREFULY TO WHAT SHE SAYS AND ANSWER HER QUESTIONS. SHE IS ALSO TRYING TO GET TO KNOW YOU. THIS INTERACTION, AND THE RESULTING CONNECTION BETWEEN THE TWO OF YOU, IS A CRUCIAL STEP TOWARDS MAKING THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE.

This is a recording of a one-on-one performance that took place over Skype. The audience member was the first soldier to ever fire a missile from a drone in combat and see it reach target. His name is Scott Swanson.
The performance is about drone warfare and the potential for both intimacy and violence embedded in the experience of staring at a screen. Performing through screens makes room for confusion and allows our assumptions to run wild. I use my body and a pathetically simple cyborgian mode of communication to expose Scott… What kind of a woman would act that way? Is she a feminist?
