Object Detail

Painting depicting a pilot in a black military aircraft. The bottom of the aircraft shows a string of white numbers and letters that refer to the code printed into a piece of metal retrieved from an American missile dropped on a residential area of Baghdad, Iraq, in March 2003. The missile killed dozens of civilians. The body of the aircraft also features a symbol in a yellow circle, which is Roger Morris' symbol for "the corporate fascist". The red dot refers to a sniper's laser dot and the words "HIT HERE" to targets attacked by the US military. One of the red dots is printed onto the silhouette of a figure. The background of the print is vivid orange. The print is from Morris' 'Enduring Freedom' series, which explores differing version of truth surrounding the September 11, 2001 'terror attacks' in the United States of America.
