In this ongoing project, suburban house collides with prison fence to invoke the needed voices and ever-presence of the incarcerated among the free in a country that locks up 2 million people. The structure is activated with walking, talking, and programming of performers, speakers. The structure is inspired by the successful collaboration of immigrants and citizens to stop the for-profit prison from being built in Crete, IL. See documentation at youtube.com/watch
