From the IRA’s dirty protests to Guantanamo Bay press tours, violence and trauma reverberate across the map and throughout generations. These projects include field reports filed post-captivity that dismantle the illusion of redemption narratives and expose inequalities in crime and punishment.

In 2015, poet Jordan Scott set out to record the ambient sounds of the Guantánamo Bay detention camp as a means of bypassing its strict media censorship rules. Today, activist and former detainee, Mansoor Adayfi, recalls how sound shaped his experience there. On the year of the 20th anniversary of the prison, Scott’s field recordings and Adayfi’s memories come together to create a visceral new landscape of this notoriously secret place.
