'Visualizing the Art of War' uses the tactile power of numbers and a vocabulary of visual abstraction to address the accumulation of information, the media experience, and to examine the toll war takes on humanity. The data collected from daily news reports forms a repeating narrative that is punctuated by excerpts from ‘The Art of War’ (Sun Tzu, 500 BC). The audio track, a mix of beeps, breaths, and phrases, refers to the media experience of sound bytes and pop rhythms. I created the drawings over the course of four months. Each day's events are interpreted, erased, and shot in video. Gritty black and white imagery contrasts garish colors. The video reflects on the relationship of real war to mediated war. ‘The Evolution of Silence,’ my current project, is also an interpretation of conflict, an archive of information, and a visualization of the impact of war.
