>> would look like." Garrett.
>> DeLappe's work includes the controversial game based, performance and
>> intervention, Dead in Iraq 2006-2011. This involved him frequently visiting
>> the US Army's online recruitment game and propaganda tool America's Army.
>> Using the login name dead-in-iraq, he methodically typed in all of the
>> names of U.S. service personnel killed in Iraq, co-opting the Army's own
>> technology challenging the official figures as a reminder to its players of
>> the real consequences of war. He also directs the iraqimemorial.orgproject, an "ongoing web based exhibition and open call for proposed
>> memorials to the many thousand of civilian casualties from the war in Iraq."
