Inside the Black Budget


In patches decorated with rockets, bombs and dragons, a photographer and author, Trevor Paglen, finds a coded guide to a secret world of military research.

Rhizome-commissioned artist Trevor Paglen appeared on the front page of the New York Times Science section today. The article discusses his work on secret military societies and his new book "I Could Tell You but Then You Would Have to Be Destroyed by Me." Paglen will speak at the upcoming New Silent Series program "Blank Spots on a Map: State Secrecy and the Limits of the Visible" in May.
