DE2N8 is part of a series of videos that play on the juxtaposition of the innocuous with the dangerous. A child plays on the left side of the screen in a continuous shot while on the right the land/body is targeted as war and insurgent footage plays. The split screen format allows one to examine the innate sense of excitement we feel through the child's consistent play with that of destruction or war. DE2N8 questions the desire of an individual as well as that of whole societies, groups, and nations to destroy. The title makes reference to internet chat abbreviations as well as to military acronyms.
