The House of Osama bin Laden
Interactive computer animation / data projection
The House of Osama bin Laden is a trilogy of artworks in the form of an interactive multi media installation made by the artists following a research visit to Afghanistan in October 2002. The central art work, which gives the trilogy it’s title, digitally recreates a house formerly occupied by bin Laden, as a basis for an exploration of the aftermath of September 11 and the western intervention in Afghanistan. Visitors are able to navigate the digital model of the house once occupied by bin Laden using a joystick
