Architecture of Fear
November 21, 2011 9:36 AM   Subscribe

Trevor Paglen (aka Agent Plorver) has work featured in Belgium's z33 House for Contemporary Art's current exhibit, Architecture of Fear. Paglen's work includes tracking and photographing 189 classified American satellites in orbit around Earth as well as locating and photographing US-run 'black sites' in Afghanistan. We Make Money Not Art (previously w/r/t Architecture of Fear) sits down with Paglen over Skype for an interview.

Two great in-depth looks at Trevor's work are Blank Spots on the Map: The Dark Geography of the Pentagon's Secret World and the photo book Invisible: Covert Operations and Classified Landscapes, with an introduction by Rebecca Solnit. [Self-interest disclosure: I represent Trevor.]
