The Guantanamobile Project
Design by Eric Rodenbeck
Guantanamo is a shadowy place - sort of US territory, sort of not. The status of the prisoners there is similarly unclear - are they terrorists? prisoners of war? both? neither? - and so is America's reaction to the prison.
We wanted the design of this piece to play into the conflicting attitudes about and purposes of the camp, and to reflect the numerous voices that America is speaking with about the place. These voices are amplified here - but they are still contradictory, and the resulting jumble serves as a container for our conflicted feelings about the larger issues of security, torture and terrorism.
