Flight Simulator

I used the flight simulator tool in Google Earth to perform a series of flights over representative areas of Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia where drone strikes had been confirmed (as of early 2013). I wanted to ‘visit’ some of these locations in an attempt to view the landscape through the eyes of a drone pilot. It was through this process that I was allowed to indulge in the meditative quality of flight itself, personified in the work by the cybernetic eagle.
