The Word Room (2001)

WordRoom.net is an evolving participatory site for dialogue on prevailing violence perpetrated against civilian populations under the guise of "war on terror."

Documented in the website, "The Word Room" project began with a multidisciplinary interactive installation in November, 2001, intended to reclaim the public space for open expression of differing views.

WordRoom.net grew beyond this physical space, as a borderless site of dissent, to question the American military aggression in Afghanistan. With the escalation of systematic state-directed terror in other parts of the world and the alarming repressive policies brought forth against freedom of expression, the site is undergoing expansion to highlight the global interconnectedness of militarism, culture of violence, and repression of civil liberties.
