  • If you sense it coming, it may be too late: the digital screen as a window
           into warfare. Art Review – I Saw the World End (2020)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In an increasingly digitised reality, our interactions with war are often filtered through the screen. This review, If you sense it coming, it may be too late: the digital screen as as window into warfare, focuses on Es Devlin and Machiko Weston’s I Saw the World End (2020) as an enmeshing of distanced spectatorship and an abstract intimacy that provides a window into warfare. The digital artist’s collaborative conceptualisation of the 1945 atomic bombings entangles a virtual and physical co-presence through its publicly networked projection. The artwork I Saw the World End enacts a personal, societal, and cultural dialogue for the past and future on the atrocities of warfare and the fragility of humanity, epitomizing digital’s art’s innate responsibility to bear witness and critique such events.

  • Framing ISIL: the media’s photograph discrimination between Africa,
           Europe, and the United States

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In January 2019, The New York Times sparked internet outrage after publishing photographs from an attack in Kenya that included dead bodies. Readers drew comparisons between these images and images posted from attacks in the west, reaffirming that the mass media play a vital role in agenda-setting. We ask how American and European News websites use images to frame attacks connected to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIL) on domestic soil compared to attacks in Africa. Do news websites differ in their image frame usage across geographical boundaries' We analyzed elements in images of ISIL attacks in Africa, Western Europe, and the USA published by American, European, Middle Eastern, and African media outlets to answer these questions. We expect the American and European press to use more feminine, weaker frames when reporting on African events and more “responsibility” and “consequence” frames for domestic. We use a sample of all reported ISIL attacks in Africa, Western Europe, and the USA beginning in 2015 to the end of 2018. This research demonstrates an implicit framing bias within media outlets, impacting international relations and public opinion.

  • Terrorism and the lawful preemptive use of force: the case of cyberattacks

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Twenty years of war against terror has led to humanitarian tragedies where the West has chosen to intervene in addition to being unable to durably eradicate the terrorist threat. As this text argues, this situation calls for a renewed strategy that needs to amend the legitimate use of force by reconsidering the criteria of pre-emptive actions in order to pave the way for non-violent and violent alternatives to war. In this regard, different forms of cyber actions can play a significant role in this well-needed renewed strategy.

  • See Spot save lives: fear, humanitarianism, and war in the development of
           robot quadrupeds

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Boston Dynamics’ robotic quadrupeds have achieved infamy and virality through a series of social media videos since 2008. In 2019 Boston Dynamics began commercial sale of ‘Spot’, a moving, sensing, networked robot dog. Spot has been designed to be a platform, which can be augmented with hardware payloads (e.g. sensors, robotic arm) and software to command Spot to conduct specific missions. In this paper we first trace the development of Spot and highlight the interest of the United States military in its development. This is followed by our text analysis of social media reactions to Boston Dynamics’ quadrupeds, revealing public fascination as well as ongoing suspicion and dark humour about ‘killer robots’. We then discuss how humanitarian applications, including in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, have been used as an opportunity to promote Spot and overcome public negativity. This is an example of a more general strategy advocates use to garner acceptance for autonomous robots in both civilian and military roles using humanitarian justifications: the robots ‘save lives.’ We conclude by discussing how Spot and other robot quadrupeds demonstrate the intertwining of humanitarian and military applications in the development, normalization and deployment of autonomous robots.

  • From warrior geek to prototype warrior: entrepreneurialism, future war,
           and the emergence of twenty-first century civil-military relations

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Armed forces are now in a race to exploit the technologies associated with Artificial Intelligence. Viewed as force multipliers, these technologies have the potential to speed up decision making and roboticise warfighting. At the same time, however, these systems disintermediate military roles and functions, creating shifts in the relationships of power in military organizations as different entities vie to shape and control how innovations are implemented. In this article we argue that new innovation processes are sites of emerging forms of public–private interaction and practices. On the one hand this is driving entrepreneurialism into government bureaucracy even as it forges new bonds between defence and industry. On the other, as technologies replace soldiers, a new martial culture is emerging, one that reframes the warrior geek as an elite innovation corps of prototype warrior. We seek to map these relationships and explore the implications for civil-military relations in the twenty-first century.

  • Sensors, interpreters, analysts: operating the ‘electronic barrier’
           during the Vietnam War

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This article examines a widely cited case study in histories of remote, computer-mediated warfare: the US Air Force’s ‘electronic barrier’, a system designed to detect and destroy communist truck convoys entering South Vietnam via the Ho Chi Minh Trail during the Vietnam War. Existing scholarship on the programme has foregrounded the technological novelty of the system, in particular its use of sensors, unmanned aircraft, and the computer centre from which the programme was remotely managed. This article seeks to provide an alternative perspective on the barrier by asking how human operators remained as fixtures in the system. To do so, I focus on ‘embodiment’ and ‘tacit knowledge’ through an analysis of the practices of photograph interpretation and data analysis which persisted despite efforts to successively computerise the barrier. Drawing on internal reports and memoranda gathered following extensive archival research, I show how these practices were required in an effort to manage critical, systemic problems of ambiguity and inaccuracy that could not be resolved by the computer. The effect was a constant drive for expansion in data and bombs, and the construction of a blunt and extraordinarily aggressive instrument which was instrumental in facilitating the unprecedented scale of the bombing campaign waged by the US Air Force on eastern Laos.

  • The hidden hierarchy of far-right digital guerrilla warfare

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The polarizing tendency of politically leaned social media is usually claimed to be spontaneous, or a by-product of underlying platform algorithms. This contribution revisits both claims by articulating the digital world of social media and rules derived from capitalist accumulation in the post-Fordist age, from a transdisciplinary perspective articulating the human and exact sciences. Behind claims of individual freedom, there is a rigid pyramidal hierarchy of power heavily using military techniques developed in the late years of the cold war, namely Russia Reflexive Control and the Boyd’s decision cycle in the USA. This hierarchy is not the old-style “command-and-control” from Fordist times, but an “emergent” one, whereby individual agents respond to informational stimuli, coordinated to move as a swarm. Such a post-Fordist organizational structure resembles guerrilla warfare. In this new world, it is the far right who plays the revolutionaries by deploying avant-garde guerrilla methods, while the so-called left paradoxically appears as conservatives defending the existing structure of exploitation. Although the tactical goal is unclear, the strategic objective of far-right guerrillas is to hold on to power and benefit particular groups to accumulate more capital. We draw examples from the Brazilian far right to support our claims.

  • How did Russian and Iranian trolls’ disinformation toward Canadian
           issues diverge and converge'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The study analyzes Russian and Iranian trolls’ intervention in Canadian politics focusing on the 2015 election, revealing a wide spectrum of disinformation. Russian trolls showed some support for then prime minister Stephen Harper and were very critical of the current prime minister, Justin Trudeau. Also, they closely aligned themselves with conservative and far-right figures, while Iranian trolls supported the far left as well as the Palestinian cause. Iranian trolls frequently attacked the former prime minister, Harper, falsely accusing him of being a CIA agent and an ISIS supporter. However, Russian and Iranian trolls converged around the issue of the conflict in Syria with both showing support for Bashar Assad’s regime and animosity toward the Syrian White Helmets group.

  • Notes on the role of the camera within a (virtual) war: the case of
           Silvered Water, Syria Self-Portrait

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Since the outbreak of uprisings in Syria in 2011, which later became the ongoing armed conflict, the Syrian population has been using small digital cameras and personal mobile phones to produce a vast number of images as graphic testimonies of the crucial events taking place in the country. The documentary essay Silvered Water, Syria Self-Portrait (2014), co-directed by Ossama Mohammed and Wiam Simav Bedirxan, was partly made remixing these vernacular videos found online. This article is an aesthetic and sociocultural analysis of the film with the aim of remarking on the role of cameras and the power of images and cinema in a conflict such as the Syrian war, defined by a deep intermingling of actual and virtual struggle. How can the use of vernacular video of the Syrian conflict in film works influence the shaping of public perceptions of the conflict and launch a truly political reflection about it' To what extent can images be used as a political weapon in a hyper-mediatized era where, having proliferated to infinity, images have lost their strength' I argue that the political capacity of images is not only limited, it also depends to a great extent on mediations, gatekeepers and the material conditions of their production and dissemination, their motivations, creators and propagators, and on the aesthetical strategy used to (re)contextualize them and (re)shape the dominant representations of the conflict given by the mass media and by the authorities.

  • The geography of our geography: counter-mapping infrastructures of power

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This artistic work sets out to devise a set of critical and artistic strategies to sense the ways in which the sky is structured under a fusion of state and corporate power. By placing the military drone as a central actor, I argue the atmosphere is enveloped within a topography of enclosure, reconfigured in the service of military and corporate technologies. By using an artistic strategy of what I term counter-reconnaissance, a necessary inversion of the satellite’s gaze, we may conceive of, and value, the atmosphere as a material entity; a parallel sky that is vivid and tangible, political and aesthetic. Counter-reconnaissance utilizes the narrative terrain of Google Earth, where its open and accessible data can be used to help map the shadow states—and invisible rules—that structures and encloses space all around us. This method counter-maps global American military drone infrastructure and makes it palpable to the viewer, creating a constellation of violent geographies.

  • Micro-cyberwar vs. macro-cyberwar: towards the beginning of a taxonomy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This essay proposes and begins a taxonomy of cyberwar, with a fundamental dichotomy between micro-cyberwar, as in attacks on individual email and automobiles, and macro-cyberwar, defined as all-out attacks on the infra-structure of society, such as hospital systems and air-traffic control. Although both can be deadly, the scale of death and destruction is usually much greater in macro-cyberwar, and it would be useful for public figures to address this dichotomy when discussing cyberwar.

  • Atmospheric politics: protest drones and the ambiguity of airspace

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This article addresses the emergence of a particular assemblage—the adoption of sUAS or small drones by subjects with different interests grouped in the same location: journalists, protestors, and police. Considering the use of sUAS by protestors in the USA during the occupy movement, the rebellion at Ferguson, Missouri, and at the #NoDAPL protests at Standing Rock, I argue for an expanded notion of airspace that does not reinforce the state violence of no-fly zones and regulatory restrictions. Once we situate drones as productive of atmospheric politics, spaces, and temporalities, we can account for their incorporation into military and governmental as well as beneficial or humanitarian uses and thereby develop a better understanding of the relational dynamics of the assemblage of airspaces, aerial vehicles, and their creators and operators.

  • The easy weaponization of social media: why profit has trumped security
           for U.S. companies

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract American-based social media companies have become active players in digital war, both by accident of design and a subsequent failure to address the threat due to concerns over profits. Discussions about the negative role of social media in society generally address the myriad problems wrought by social media, including electoral manipulation, foreign disinformation, trolling, and deepfakes, as unfortunate side effects of a democratizing technology. This article argues that the design of social media fosters information warfare. With its current composition and lack of regulation, social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter are active agents of disinformation, their destructive force in society outweighing their contributions to democracy. While this is not by deliberate design, the twin forces of capitalism and a lack of regulation of the world’s largest social media platforms have led to a situation in which social media are a key component of information war around the globe. This means that scholarly discussions should shift away from questions of ethics or actions (or lack thereof) on the part of social media companies to a frank focus on the security risk posed to democracy by social media.
