US military and CIA drone operators are believed to refer to casualties in Afghanistan as “bug splats” — because of the lack of detail visible on a remote camera screen.
A new blog claims to have documented the work of artists who are attempting to present a clearer view of drone strike victims to the remote pilots. They have laid out a giant photograph in a field showing a girl whose parents and two siblings were killed in a drone attack. It’s not clear who the artists are, or even where they’re based, but the results are striking.
