On Friday night December 23, 5 of us set up outside the Museum of Modern Art with a Reaper drone replica. We handed out flyers to people who were interested in why a replica of a U.S. made drone was on the streets of Manhattan. World Can't Wait set up outside the MoMA because Harun Farocki: Images of War (at a Distance) is on exhibit till January 2. It deals with video-game technology used to train soldiers in practices of high-tech modern warfare.
Nick Mottern has isntalled a video camera inside the drone, which feeds to a laptop. When people walk past the drone they can see themselves in the crosshairs of the drone on the laptop screen. Nick provided information about the U.S. drone programs. The World Can't Wait crew met people who had come to see us with the drone replica and a lot of people who had not heard of drone warfare yet.
A documentary film maker filmed people reacting to seeing themselves caught in the crosshairs and Nick interviewing a young woman from Pakistan who had a lot to say about the drone attacks on Pakistan.
