Mobile lovers, Banksy

(Clement Street, Bristol, UK)

The child featured in the poster is nameless, but lost both her parents and two young siblings in a drone attack. 
This portrait of a girl tells a story larger than the massive piece of vinyl it is printed on. Unfurled in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region of Pakistan, “#NotABugSplat” was created by a collection of artists and activists, using TED Prize winner JR’s Inside Out campaign, to send a message to drone operators, who reportedly call their kills “bug splats” because they appear small and grainy on screen. The idea is to “create empathy and introspection amongst drone operators,” explains the project website (http://notabugsplat.com).

I was asked by designer Koen de Wilde to participate in his project “huisnr.” (see huisnr.koenst.nl). He is fascinated by the basic shape of a house and hands out little wooden houses to designers and artists so they can do their own thing with it.
This is my contribution to the project. You can also see it on the project website:http://huisnr.koenst.nl/005
