ASU Downtown Gallery Showing Video Installation On Guatemalan Civil War Veterans

Yoshua Okon takes real-life incidents and creates video installations from them.

One called "Oracle" included the town’s residents recreating an immigration-related protest.

He also came up with "Octopus" in 2011. It featured Guatemalan day laborers reenacting their military training in the parking lot of a Los Angeles Home Depot.

That creation is now being exhibited at Arizona State University’s downtown gallery space through Oct. 3. Okon, who was in Mexico, spoke about his work.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The headline has been updated to reflect the the video project currently being exhibited at ASU's gallery.
