Missile testing's purpose is rarely to actually test missiles. It is geopolitical theater, choreographed propaganda, a show for other nations to project power on the international stage. North Korea is very active at the moment, but all power players broadcast to the world their missile testing.

This unit uses governmental footage of missile tests, extracting the moment where rockets just leave a trace in the sky, like a cloud, a star, or a fleeting light. Taking away the fear it suggests, and instead only leaving a contemplative floating moment.

These images are made to be printed in very large formats, soft bkue skies bluring into digital artifacts.
