Lot Essay

"Under Discussion is an experimental device for publicizing such counter- knowledge, not only as information but as a testimonial rights - claim for environmental justice that interrupts the space of politics itself. In the video, a local activist uses the displaced, motorized table to lead viewers on a kind of situationist eco-tour around the restricted area of the island (Vieques), reactivating the antagonisms that haunt the picturesque coastline and bearing witness to the legacy of the Vieques fishermen's movement, which initiated maritime civil disobedience against the Navy in the 1970's."
(Yates McKee, Uncertain States of America, Oslo 2005, p 92).
