Schöne Arbeit von Diego Trujillo, der als Reaktion auf den ganzen Snowden-NSA-Überwachungs-Heckmeck einen Printer gebaut hat, der Cold War-Spy-Fiction mit NSA-Dokumenten masht und sie auf Papier ausdruckt, das sich innerhalb weniger Sekunden selbst entzündet: THIS TAPE WILL SELF DESTRUCT. Interview mit dem Herrn gibt's auf We Make Money Not Art.

In July 2013 the BBC reported that a Russian security agency would revert from using computers to typewriters in order to avoid sensitive document leaks. The following January The Guardian released a video of its editors destroying the computer equipment that stored the NSA files provided by Edward Snowden. The release of the NSA files will likely be part of this decade’s history, however the debate around government espionage and secrecy for the sake of national security seems more related to the Cold War than to modern living.

This Tape Will Self Destruct explores the intersection between our current techno-political status and Cold War spy fiction. The project consists of an electronic device that prints self-destructing documents. The documents are a mixture of images and texts extracted from Cold War fictions paired up with excerpts from current secret documents, resulting in an amalgam that blurs the line between present reality and past fiction. A short amount of time after leaving the machine the documents burst into fire and their content is forever erased as the flames consume the paper.

Bringing the iconic self-destructing document to reality through a functional machine re-validates Cold War fictions in the context of the contemporary values surrounding secrecy.
