Leaflet Drop: The Paper Landscapes of War


This essay investigates the use of leaflets as a tactical weapon of war. The paper was first presented at “Casting Doubt,” a conference held at the University of Rochester, New York, in 2003. The full essay is available to read online at Invisible Culture (2004).

This research later developed into a short artist’s book, Airdrop (2004), that documents a wide range of objects that fall from the sky during times of war and crisis.
