a black and white world
alas! no graphics?
narrative focus only = boring :(
1960's 'turnarounds'- Color broadcasting &
UHF (Ultra high frequency) Then came the concept of...
Internet! started by the Defense for sharing military research proliferation into personal use In his novel '1984', George Orwell expresses his genius (yet potentially flawed) claim of "Big Brother watching"... There will come a time when the State
shall conduct propaganda by spying on
its citizens. Outright Totalitarianism!! Themes
the 'Ministry of Truth' doctors public archives
Abu Ghraib pics - product of digital technology- out of State control
citizens rights, freedom from Big Brother's control
Abu Ghraib- tarnished the spirit of American freedom (What were we thinking?!) Sexual Repression
Big Brother imposes antisexualism upon members- State controls sex!
Abu Ghraib pics- U.S. soldiers ('Little Brother') in a position to manipulate State by documenting sexual torture, Government was helpless...
Iraq war begins.....
and so does an era of new war technology U.S. soldiers use digital cameras to document torture at Abu Ghraib prison...
1. How long were you in Iraq?
"I was in Iraq for 15 months- December of 2007 till March of '09". 4. At any point in time did anyone ever tell you what you could and couldn't take pictures of?
"Yes, there definitely are rules around what you can and can't take pictures of; it's part of keeping us safe if somone gets killed or just drops their camera so the enemy knows what we are doing and they can find ways to work around us". 3. How frequently did you take photos? "I took photos pretty much the whole time I was there. Most people do... we got bored a lot so I got a lot of funny videos with the pics I'm sending you". 2. What are your thoughts on Abu Ghraib? "Abu Ghraib huh, what can I say? It definitely violated not just a bunch of our rules but the Geneva convention. Yeah, these guys were terriorist haji peices of shit but we are professional. This is not Syracuse, NY. Plus if they really wanted to fight and cause harm to those who try to harm us they should've joined the infantry like I did and actually fight instead of being a babysitter. Also, the really bad part about that was they were a bunch of reservists, they weren't even active duty. Not to mention we'd probably be out of Iraq way before now if that didn't happen.They just made me and everbody else who wears the uniform, look like shit and they got what they deserved". Interview with a U.S. Army soldier... from a soldier's lens... Role of technology in documenting the Iraq war By: Gillian Small, Hansika Shergill, Meg Beers
