To Serve the National Interest

Ingrid Burrington, Josh Begley, Seth Freed Wessler

D&S artist-in-residence Ingrid Burrington, with Josh Begley and Seth Freed Wessler, created an installation on presentation at the Ace Hotel.

Building on Wessler’s journalistic investigation into privately run immigrant-only federal prisons, Burrington and Begley present seventy-five individual lenticular prints of satellite imagery capturing these sites and government documents pertaining to them. Together the images, arranged into three distinct grids, explore and abstract “the terrain of U.S. immigration and carceral policy and the human stories usually conspicuously absent in the aerial perspective.”
