THE EVIDENCE OF ABSENCE, 2015
The Evidence of Absence was a replica military surveillance blimp launched above a residential neighbourhood in London.
Currently deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan, these helium-filled behemoths are being considered for use by forces in the U.K. and U.S. for border control.
The work's title refers to a remark by former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld concerning the search for Saddam Hussein’s alleged weapons of mass destruction: 'The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.'
