Terminal Air (Institute for Applied Autonomy and Trevor Paglen)

Tad Hirsch (Institute for Applied Autonomy) and experimental
geographer Trevor Paglen will present early research for their new
project, Terminal Air, an interactive installation that enables
audiences to track a fleet of CIA-operated aircraft around the
world. These airplanes, which were first uncovered by an
international network of amateur aviation enthusiasts and later
reported on by various investigative journalists, are known to be
involved in "extraordinary rendition"—the practice of illegally
transporting terrorism suspects to secret overseas military bases
for torture and interrogation. Paglen will also talk about Torture
Taxi: On the Trail of the CIA's Rendition Flights, which he co- wrote with journalist AC Thompson. Andrew Woods of Harvard Law
School will also speak. Terminal Air is supported by 2006-2007
