THE STORY:

With your help we can continue to smuggle the unacknowledged Iraqi body count into governmental archives. Together we can put this memorial under the noses and inside the mailboxes of people in power.

The Notepad is an act of protest and commemoration disguised as a stack of ordinary yellow legal pads. When the pages are magnified, each ruled line is revealed to be microprinted text enumerating the full names, dates, and locations of each Iraqi civilian death on record over the first three years of the Iraq War. Starting in 2010, hundreds of the notepads were covertly distributed to US representatives and senators. As a form of Trojan Horse, the effort injected transgressive data into the halls of power and put the pages into circulation around Capitol Hill. Eventually, many of these sheets will be memorialized in official archives where the names of Iraqi civilians will also find historical recognition.

Funds collected will be used to off set the costs of printing and mailing.
