What struck me while putting together this sculpture was how it resembled a horseshoe crab. With its hard armor it has survived the battles of evolution throughout time. They are considered living fossils. While this piece resembles the ancient creature it was provoked by a broadcast interview of a US military operations officer who programs drone strikes in areas 7,000 miles away. After hearing how removed the officer was from civilian causalities that often occur it brings up the question of how will wars, without the presence of soldiers in the areas of conflict, effect judgment and restraint. In this piece there are fragments of children holding hands.
