Mixed media including shredded classified documents

Project commissioned by Rhizome and the New Museum in New York

Toy pandas were stuffed with shredded Snowden papers and classified documents, as well as a digital SD memory card backup, and smuggled out of China — where “panda” is also a slang word for the secret police. The pandas were sent to figures including Snowden in Moscow and Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, to form a literal peer-to-peer network of information distribution, [which also symbolically connected people in their work towards civil justice.]
