Incendiary Traces invites Convening attendees to draw in the virtual battlespace of Arma 3. Developed with funding from the US Military as a Game for Training, Arma 3 is an open world military simulation game sited on the fictional island Atlis, based on the real-life Greek island of Lemnos. In 2012, two Army 3 developers were arrested on Lemnos by Greek authorities and charged with espionage. Through on-site drawing events, research and publication, Incendiary Traces collectively explores the role of landscape imagery - and the power of the gaze - in international conflict.
