Live Fire Exercise (Djibouti) 2011


As with the other works in the Exercise series, Live Fire Exercise has been developed from a single image: a photograph from what is known as a 'live fire exercise' by the US Military, or an exercise using explosives. The photograph was sourced on the US military media interface site Defence Video and Image Distribution System: www.dvidshub.net

In the work a single explosion occurs each afternoon - producing a form which is held sculpturally until burning out in twenty five minutes - the time of the original performance.
