Project for the New American Century
In the summer of 2000, the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), a neo-conservative think tank of Bush administration officials and advisors, issued a document calling for the radical restructuring of U.S. government and military policies. It advocated the massive expansion of defense spending, the re-invasion of Iraq, and many other policies that have eroded our freedom and democracy.
This has cost us dearly. Over the course of eight years, 4,500 U.S. service members lost their lives fighting in Iraq. Years later, we are witnessing an unprecedented erosion of our constitutional rights: domestic spying on every American, attacks on freedom of speech, the prosecution of the press, corporations as people, and erosion of our democracy. Considering this, I created a 4′-0″ x 6′-0″ mosaic image of George W. Bush made from portraits of U.S. solders who were lost to the war in Iraq. These images were acquired through Mass Information and the Temporal Graffiti War.
