Drones in Waziristan (Detail)
Synthetic carpet
6' 7" W X 7' 6" L

This piece was inspired by Afghani rug weavers who in the 1990s began weaving war motifs in their carpets because the country had been in war for such a long time. During the time of making this work rug weavers have begun weaving drones into their rugs.

It is composed of all the dates of drone attacks that took place in Warizstan from the first drone that was dropped in Pakistan to the most recent during the time it took to complete the work (approximately one year) Every time the piece will be exhibited I will add the dates of new attacks in the region
