Jordan Scott
Art Gallery of York University
Artists' Books
4.7 × 7 inches
80 pp

In April 2015, Jordan Scott was granted access to the Guantánamo Bay Detention Center, a visit which lasted five days. While under constant supervision, he was allowed to take photographs and notes, as well as capture field recordings. His attention focused on the facility’s library, collection of detainee art, and surrounding landscape. All Scott’s material was subject to military censorship during daily Operational Security meetings except for his poetry and field recordings, which escaped scrutiny entirely.
This book contains a sampling of what was allowed out.

This artist book is published in conjunction with a sound-art project by Jordan Scott and Jason Starnes presented at the AGYU January to March 2019 as part of the Audio Out listening bench series. The sequencing of the book was originally designed by Andrea Actis and Dylan Godwin for an e-publication for The Capilano Review.
