A powerful project, The Home Drone Project, seeks to bring the violence and detachment felt about drone attacks in the United States to a reality check. Artists started by mapping the 344 U.S. drone strikes in northern Pakistan since 2004. They then transferred the dots directly to a map of the United States, starting at the site of the Boston Tea Party, the nation’s first national insurgent act. The project then set off to photograph what and who would have been destroyed had a drone hit there on that day. The results are stunning.
