Selected Works


Joseph DeLappe has been frequenting the US Army’s online recruitment game and propaganda tool, America’s Army, since March of 2006. Using the login name “Dead-in-Iraq,” DeLappe has refused to play the game, opting instead to access the system’s chat interface —a communication device intended for gamers to strategize with one another. By methodically typing out all of the names of U.S. service personnel who have been killed in Iraq, DeLappe has co-opted the Army’s own technology to undermine official representations of soldiers and military service, thus reminding players about the very real consequences of war.
