“Spyglasses, as Lipperhey called telescopes, whether they're in the form of spotting scopes, spyplanes, or reconnaissance satellites, are more than simple instruments or tools. They beget infrastructures and geographies.”
Trevor Paglen, Blank Spots on the Map: The Dark Geography of the Pentagon's Secret World

“What we see strongly guides what we do: To an extent, we enact what we imagine.”
Trevor Paglen, Blank Spots on the Map: The Dark Geography of the Pentagon's Secret World

“The private security industry feeds on itself, creating the conditions for its own growth. As unemployment rises, there's more work to be done protecting the increasingly conglomerated wealth.

Trevor Paglen, Blank Spots on the Map: The Dark Geography of the Pentagon's Secret World
