Joseph DeLappe's dead-in-iraq project is an online memorial and protest taking place within the US Army recruitment game, "America's Army". DeLappe entered the game as "dead-in-iraq" in order to manually type the name, age, service branch, date of death of each service person who has died to date in Iraq using the game's message function. The offers a fleeting, online memorial to those military personnel who have been killed in this ongoing conflict as well as providing as a cautionary gesture.

dead-in-iraq is on show at FACT throughout the MyWar exhibition.
