Rendition Engine

sound, video, blown glass
9" x 14"
2010

Extraordinary Rendition involves the unacknowledged, illegal kidnapping and air transport of prisoners around the world to be interrogated and often tortured so as to force the divulgence of information about terrorist activities. Much was learned about the CIA's rendition program over the last eight years through the work of planespotters in tracking rendition planes, the work of journalists and human rights advocates in gathering of testimony by former detainees, and in the work of people who connected all of the dots and unearthed the rendition program in its present form.

Rendition Engine is an iconographical interpretation of the recent history of Extraordinary Rendition, using audio and video in the context of a blown-glass form that resembles a commercial jet engine.
