Joseph Delappe is a professor at the University of Nevada, Reno. He work in online gaming and electromagnetical installation. In 2006, he began a project dead -in -Iraq. He received a lot of grants and awards. He is a pioneer of online gaming performance art. He is the first anthology to examine the reciprocal relationship between militarism and video games.He had MA in Pictorial Arts, MA in Computers in Art and Design, BS in Graphic Design, and AA degree. His projects were used to cardboard to make the military and Ghandi.
In the money bill, he put the stamp depicting an MQ1 Predator Drone. he was featuring paper money as its platform ” In Drones We Trust”, he explains :”The idea came after closely examining U.S. currency – all but the $1 dollar bill feature a pastoral depiction of a notable government building or monument on the back of the bills, albeit with lonely, empty skies. It seems appropriate, considering our current use of drones in foreign skies, to symbolically ring them home to fly over our most notable patriotic structures.” That was interesting.
I like the idea that he used cardboard to create the art. He was awesome withe the 17 foot tall of Ghandi. He also make connection between the video game and military. He used cardboard to create the soldier on the floor with his gun. He used the electronic to make a big flowers.
I think he was amazing with his idea. i wonder how strong and hard for cardboard to stay for long time. He may puts something inside the cardboard to make them stay and don’t fall a part.
