William Cromar: GTMO

This cell is a recreation of a cell from Camp X-Ray, the now abandoned holding cells in the United States Federal Detention Center at Guantanamo Bay. By placing the Guantanamo Bay inside an Eastern State cell, Cromar illustrates "nearly polar-opposite means used to find a nearly equivalent end."
