Incendiary Traces
invites viewers to draw the landscape of the Mediterranean within the virtual battlespace of Arma 3. Arma 3 is an open world, military simulation game sited on the fictional island of Atlis, inspired by the real-life Greek island of Lemnos. Drawing in situ, we will look closely at Arma 3’s version of this landscape in conflict, and consider the politics of visualizing the southern EU border.
