Excavating a scenography of trials—formal or covert, orchestrated or improvised, criminalizing or criminal—Feldman exhibits how the desire to fact disappears into the very violence it interrogates. He maps the sensory inscriptions and erasures of warfare, highlighting struggle as a media that severs factuality from reality to render violence simply. He proposes that struggle promotes an anesthesiology that interdicts the witness of a sensory and affective commons that has the capability to talk fact to struggle. Feldman makes use of layered deconstructive description to slow down the ballistical pace of struggle to salvage the embodied actualities and fabric histories that struggle reduces to the ashes of collateral harm, the automatism of drones, and the opacities of black websites. the result's a penetrating paintings that marries serious visible conception, political philosophy, anthropology, and media archeology right into a trenchant dissection of rising different types of sovereignty and kingdom strength that struggle now makes possible.
