Last July 1, the controversial Protection of Public Safety Bill (Ley de Protección de la Seguridad Ciudadana)also known as ‘gag law’ (ley mordaza), the reform of the Criminal Code, and the anti jihadist law, came into force.

Field of Light is the embodiment of this experience. He recreated this installation in different places in the world.Read More
