a set of artistic visualizations that convey data related to current US military actions. they aim to illustrate the meaning of the data rather than its true characteristics. the data is retrieved from a variety of news sources & RSS feeds. 'Home Front' reveals US military casualties in Iraq by State,' while 'March 03' uses XML feeds more elaborately, to 'drive the animation of discrete units to show each casualty, the sweep of each month & the cumulative effect.'
