"Cherry Blossoms is a backpack that uses a small microcontroller and a
GPS unit. Recent news of bombings in Iraq are downloaded to the unit
every night, and their relative location to the center of the city are
superimposed on a map of Boston. If the wearer walks in a space in
Boston that’s correlated to a site of violence in Baghdad, the backpack
detonates, releasing a compressed air cloud of confetti, looking for all
the world like smoke and shrapnel. Each piece of confetti has the name
of a civilian who died in a war based on lies."
