The Illuminator: Illuminating Protest Laura Bluher

Illuminating Protest

Participants are invited to virtually occupy the streets of Montreal via video projection of recorded interaction. This illuminates the issue that protest—the cornerstone of democracy—has recently been made illegal in Quebec in the wake of the popular student movement.


The Illuminator is an art collective that emerged from Occupy Wall Street in New York City. Armed with a powerful projector, it supports the 99% by beaming messages of solidarity and staging political interventions in NYC and beyond. This “spectacularization machine” draws people into a space where a new kind of conversation may take place.
