Anchors for Witnessing

Ricardo Dominguez

Anchors for Witnessing, an internet-based activist art project created by Ricardo Dominguez for Electronic Disturbance Theater, uses technology to creatively link communities beyond the First World high-band superhighway to address U.S./Mexico border issues, economic policy, and human rights. Anchors for Witnessing allows participants to use technology to subvert power and focus attention on human rights issues in the U.S. and Mexico. Following in the tradition of activist groups from the Berliner Ensemble to rtMark, Anchors for Witnessing ’s goal is to accelerate the pace of both media art making and dissemination.
