Exploring the evolution of the battlefield and various forms of distance, Predator/Protector contemplates particular developments that may change the future of warfare and what this means for the perpetrators. Using Sontag's idea of how war imagery on TV and internet distance us further as we relate these scenes to the cinematic, Predator/Protector attempts to combat this by showing that these issues materialize and take action from our space. Predator/Protector aims to contrast these idealistic and un-intrusive views with the reality to show that they are part of the ever-expanding 'battlespace' in the information age. These images are combined with representations of aspects one cannot photograph that show interesting parallels that would not be achievable photographing the subjects under investigation.
