My Space for Your Life

This project employs the potential of viral communication within social networking web sites (in this case Facebook) to spread awareness of the accidental deaths accompanying the Iraq war (and all wars). Memorial Facebook pages are created in honor individuals killed in Iraq. Volunteers have agreed to stand in for the Iraqi named in the sign they hold. These pages are then circulated through the Facebook community by the act of friending. I have completed approximately twenty pages myself and will soon put out a call for people around the world to create pages.

You can participate in this project by searching for and friending the Facebook pages for the Iraqis named above. You can also contact me to be photographed if you are in New York City.
