my space for your life

This project employs the potential of viral communication within social networking web sites (in this case Facebook) to spread awareness of the accidental deaths accompanying the Iraq war (and all wars). Memorial Facebook pages are created in honor individuals killed in Iraq. Volunteers have agreed to stand in for the Iraqi named in the sign they hold. These pages are then circulated through the Facebook community by the act of friending. I have completed over twenty-five portraits at this point. If you live in the New York City area and would like to participate, please contact me.
