Turbulence.org Commission: "Kill Box" by Joseph DeLappe (US) and Malath
Abbas, Tom deMajo and Albert Elwin (UK)

your speakers are on.]

"Kill Box" is an online interactive game that critically explores the
nature of drone (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, or UAV) warfare, its complexities
and consequences. It is an experience that explores the use of technology
to transform and extend political and military power, and the abstraction
of killing through virtualization.

Kill Box is the Military term used to describe an area on a grid map that a
mission planner designates a target to be destroyed. "Kill Box" involves
audiences in a fictionalized virtual environment based on documented drone
strikes in Northern Pakistan (executed via satellite from as far away as
Las Vegas, Nevada).

"Kill Box" is a 2015 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. for
its Turbulence.org website. It was made possible with funds from the
National Endowment for the Arts (USA). Additional funding has been provided
by The Phoenix Theatre (Leicester, UK); and The Cutting Room (UK).
