Sharon Daniel: Capitalist Punishment

Sharon Daniel (UCSC / Faculty / DANM)

A multi-media installation developed in collaboration with California state prisoners. Capitalist Punishment will challenge audiences to join in critical resistance against the corruption of the Prison Industrial Complex through: a museum installation of prison industry products inscribed with statements made by prison laborers, a multi-media museum tour including audio interviews with prison laborers, a locative-media “social cost” price tracker that identifies the products of prison labor in the market place, and an interactive web site that maps the social geography of the prison industrial complex.
