During a residency at DAR I made a word cloud out of comments people leave below articles about the shoot-on-sight policy at the Kaziranga National Park in India, home to endangered one-horned rhinos and India's flagship conservation program. According to a BBC documentary, after an increase in illegal rhino killings park rangers have been instructed to shoot and kill people they think are poachers. Over 20 people were killed in 2015, more than the number of rhinos killed that year. BBC's document criticizes the policy for which they have been later banned from filming in India's tiger reserves.

The videoclip is the result of building a scale weighing the deaths of rhinos and humans, done in collaboration with Kardenkan (music). Kardenkan's soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/kardenkan
