Video Art & Activism Illuminating Baltimore
Eleven years after its opening, and four years after Pres. Obama signed an order to close it, the US is still holding over 200 prisoners in the US detention facility at Guantanamo. The majority of these prisoners have been cleared of wrongdoing by the US and are victims of circumstance. At a time when the Bush Administration needed to show progress in detaining "the worst of the worst," innocent men and children were arrested, tortured, and indefinitely detained. Luminous Intervention partnered with Witness Against Torture, a leading voice for the closure of Guantanamo, to project a visual reminder of Guantanamo's continued existence and Pres. Obama's promises to close it. The projection took place on January 12th in Washington D.C, the day after Guantanamo's 11th anniversary.

Luminous Intervention is a series of large-scale outdoor projections highlighting social and economic issues relevant to Baltimore and its people.
