Multimedia Artist Laurie Anderson Presents Live-Stream of Former Guantanamo Bay Prisoner

Publish date:

Laurie Anderson's installation piece Habeas Corpus was a one-time event at the Park Avenue Armory earlier this month which beamed a live video of former Guantanamo Bay prisoner Mohammed el Gharani onto a 3D body cast that portrayed him at three times his size. Besides el Gharani speaking in his own words, the piece featured ambient guitar feedback created by Lou Reed as well as sounds of surveillance audio and live musicians.

Explained Anderson to Fast Company's Co.Design, "We wanted to create a sort of meditative space so people could have this feeling of drones—[Reed's] guitar feedback work—which is meant to put people in a sort of dream state."
