SECRECY — SIX LANDSCAPES  (Black Projects, Satellites, CIA Fronts, Secret Military Patches, etc.)     

Trevor Paglen explains this military patch (“let them hate as long as they fear”) below in this outstanding presentation (see the video at the bottom):

Although people around the world are becoming increasingly aware of the United States’ global geography of surveillance, covert action, and other secret programs, much of this landscape is invisible in our everyday lives.
The drone war, for example, seems to happen somewhere else while surveillance programs take place among the (largely) invisible infrastructures and digital protocols of the internet and other communications networks.  Moreover, the state agencies responsible for secret programs strive to make them as invisible as possible.
In this talk, artist Trevor Paglen discusses his work attempting to see the various aspects of the secret state.  In examples ranging from tracking spy satellites to foraging through the bureaucratic refuse of CIA front companies, Paglen will discuss methods used to identify and exploit structural contradictions in classified programs which render them visible, and comment on the aesthetics and politics of attempting to see secrecy:
