Inspired by an article in the New York Times, "What the C.I.A.’s Torture Program Looked Like to the Tortured". The article tells the story of Abu Zubaydah, the first person known to be waterboarded by the C.I.A., who was waterboarded 83 times. According to the article, this left him "completely unresponsive, with bubbles rising through his open, full mouth".
The work was partially created with software designed by the artist, which builds on techniques from social psychological research on facial features. It was built to allow for the combination of any number of works into a single depiction, representing the colors and shapes of all underlying works at once.
