Fusing Art and Technology to See Combat Through a New Lens

Photo by Lincoln Schatz

Lincoln Schatz is more than an artist. He’s an emissary. His work is both a visual waltz and a dope slap for the real human condition. I’ve learned more drafting behind Lincoln’s cutting-edge work than reading research about the future of visual communication. Beyond being a visionary, he’s a creative technologist crafting a new art + tech genre.

See for yourself. As part of the Serving Abroad…Through Their Eyes photography project, Art in Embassies commissioned Lincoln Schatz to create a video montage of military life.

The images are from photographs of daily life taken by current and former military personnel working overseas. The final work will be installed in the U.S. Embassy in Kabul after it tours other national and international venues including The Pentagon, State Department and the Smithsonian American Art Museum in the fall of 2012.

Congratulations, Lincoln. Stay out there on the frontier, right where we need you.
