Public Screenings:
Peace + Justice Week Screening, Beloit, WI, USA.
Arthouse Film and Video Festival Screening, Tampa, FL., USA

Details:
This piece was installed in an orange emergency preparedness tent with a series of props and a set of directions.

It is the second of three videos in a series exploring US detention sites using documentary materials.

In the title, the numbers indicate the years the materials span while the lower case "i" (e.g., ipod, iphone) gives a nod to the sharing technologies that have allowed these contentious materials to freely circulate.
