Five Classified Aircraft (Trevor Paglen) BY William Gibson

WG has written a short piece for MOMA about Trevor Paglen, 'an artist and geographer, who collected unofficial embroidered patches from the “black world” of classified intelligence and military units, revealing both closely guarded secrets and the esoteric visual language that accompanies them.'
