Abstract:

  • Since the end of last century the US military has been transforming into a modern fighting force. High speed communications systems and real time imaging have changed the face of war but new weapons are only one factor driving change. New leaders and new policies also play an important part. This paper looks at the transformation of the US military and specifically the increasing use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones. It also discusses my own work TRACKER and reflects on the role that art can play in raising awareness about surveillance and war.
