Did I just kill a kid? No. That was a dog. A dog on two legs? (Work in progress, 2014-)

Did I just kill a kid? No. That was a dog. A dog on two legs? is a longterm project
or workflow dealing with the context and perception of images and information
originating from war/conflict zones or events with significant (political) meaning.
The works in the project reflect on the idea of modernday/realtime spectatorship
and the use of images/camera’s as bullets or weapons. Next to this the projects
explores the notion of ‘being a photographer from a distance’, not being at the
actual place where the subjected events happen, resulting in a constant shifting
between video, photography and text. Did I just kill a kid? No. That was a dog.
A dog on two legs will eventually become a ‘documentary’ about weaponized
images and the network or structure that creates and delivers them, and in which
the role of the artist is one of, one could say, a double agent providing in (counter)
information that bends or shifts perception on these events, but also on the
changing use of images in contemporary (conflict) situations and events.
