Cook County Jail: The Visible and Invisible / 2013
The Cook County Jail in Chicago (USA), located at 26th and California in the Little Village Community, is estimated to hold about 10,000 detainees on any given day and 100,000 per year. As a native of Little Village, I was interested in producing a story that reflects on what it means to live next to one of the largest pre-detention facilities in the country and how the jail, at times, is both visible and invisible to the local community. The piece is the beginning of an archive that includes a series of on-site back-to-back interviews that unfold the psycho-geographical experience of the jail, along with a series of publications, radio broadcasts, and a site-responsive projects.
