Passersby were encouraged to participate in our interactive, realtime version of the Tax Evaders game, which was projected on to the wall of a local Bank of America branch. ...see more about Tax Evaders

During rush hour on March 8th Luminous Intervention did a popup projection on a transit bridge that crosses highway 83, visible to Northbound traffic. The projection was in support of the homeless encampment knows as Camp 83, which was located below a downtown overpass, and which had been a long-term home for those who had found no room at the City's homeless shelter, or had resented the enforced curfew hours and rules there. ...see more about #Camp83 Pop-up

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.
