Artist Christopher Sims spent three years gaining approval to visit the US military base at Guantanamo Bay. His photographs documenting the sites of daily life--the video games, the barbecues, the McDonald's, the playground--will be exhibited at Civilian Art Projects in Washington, DC beginning this Friday.
Since it appears to no longer be in active use, I will be watching the military surplus auctions for this geodesic jungle gym. Can you imagine how hardcore that'd be, playground equipment from Fidel's backyard?
