“I call it “The Companion”. A story about two friends – a girl and her imaginary pet – who traveled for a long time, saw many beautiful places and met a lot of new people, creatures and animals who joined them as their journey continued. They arrived to something that resembles the edge of the world, and at first it might seem that their adventure has come to an end, but the girl is pointing at something high above that we cannot see, showing to her companion that there are more things to discover and enjoy together if only they wish to continue moving forward.”

An art installation of a Pakistani child that looks back at Predator drone operators. A beautiful confrontation of the anonymity and detachment of 21st century war.

“According to Foundation for Fundamental Rights, who launched the project, the child in the poster lost both her parents and her two siblings in a drone strike. Now, when drone operators survey the grainy landscape on their computer screens, they’ll see the face of a child victim staring back at them.”
