Images from We Will Show You Fear in a Handful of Dust including the three days of participatory mudding and the resulting drone sculpture at Occidental College in Los Angeles, Ca. March 14 - May 9, 2014


"We Will Show You Fear in a Handful of Dust" is a participatory sculpture project by Los Angeles-based artist collective in collaboration with artists Nadia Afghani and Matt Fisher that utilized the fabrication of a full size replica of a MQ-1B Predator drone aircraft. Over two hundred people helped FS and collaborators at Occidental College hand-finish the drone with an age-old application method using architectural-grade mud to the surface of the cnc'd substrate. In the dichotomy between the drone's form and its surface, the sculpture initiated a powerful discussion of technology and contemporary foreign policy while inviting multiple propositions about cultural legacies and possible resistances in the era of pervasive global surveillance and warfare.
