A game is a way of representing the world. Thus, a game transposes systems of values or abstract formal systems into concrete object. The idea of the game becomes part of the subject. My son and his peers casually played video games of killing. There was permission to violence that has seemingly no permanent consequence; there was only the romance and the heroic. The mounting toll of deaths in our own war has brought into the work the ghostly forms of toy soldiers,. They are faceless so as not to represent any individual that we could name but to be any soldier or all soldiers. Ghostlike their shadows appear as substance, ominous in the landscape.
