Iraq Body Count panorama

You can just make out a thin strip of red flags in the distance. A sign nearby reads:

"Each white flag represents at least 5 Iraqis, Each red flag represents 5 Americans killed as a result of the 2003 invasion of Iraq."

 

As of March, 2008, iraqbodycount.org estimates about 85,000 civilians have died from violence in Iraq since 2003.

 

This was an installation at Portland State University in Portland, Oregon, March 2008. You can learn more about it here.
