Bed Down Location is a projection of the night skies over Yemen, Somalia, and Pakistan, countries where the U.S. military conducts “targeted killings” using unmanned aircraft. The work also includes footage from Creech Air Force Base in Nevada, where the military tests and flies drones. The title of the work refers to the military term denoting where a targeted person sleeps.
