This piece was installed in an orange emergency preparedness tent with a series of props and a set of directions.
It is the first 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.
Salon's "Abu Ghraib Files," found footage from YouTube, and The Washington Post's "Sworn Statements by Abu Ghraib Detainees."
