merz_city.SKU05010405iraqieye_3
The SKU is also like a date of expiration on an item of packaged food. But the text reports even though the news is old news. Text is lifted from the New York Times report series, “The Struggle for Iraq” from a period on or near the date of the SKU. The third element is images of the eyes of wounded children in Iraq from 2003. I found the source images on aljazeera.net in 2003. I made them into banners for the banner art collective, and later these became machinima interventions in the project velvetstrike, a collection of anti-war sprays for the video game Counterstrike.
