Caren Kaplan, who we’re reading this week, developed a multimedia exploration of GPS technologies, called Precision Targets. It is fashioned as a graphic novel, to accompany her writing. In her introduction, she writes:
My study of GPS in this era of seemingly endless war has led me to ask how “dual-use” technologies blur the distinction between military and civilian spheres. What are our expectations and assumptions about information technologies? How can we say “no” to war when we say “yes” to militarization every single day? Precision Targets is designed to raise these questions and others as you move through the multimedia piece to engage the animated possibilities of GPS in everyday life.
