Art

The Illuminator Ⓓ

The Illuminator is an art-activist collective comprised of visual artists, educators, filmmakers, and technologists living and working in New York City. We are currently an eight-person collective, united by a desire to smash the myths of the information industry and shed light on the demands of the 99%.

The collective has staged hundreds of projection-interventions in public spaces, transforming the street from a space of passive consumption and transit into a site of engagement, conflict, and dialogue. The images generated circulate across the internet as vivid talismans of trespass within the suffocating visual culture of commodity capitalism. Our work calls attention to the many urgent crises that confront us, in support of the ongoing struggle for a more just, peaceful and sustainable world. We view these interventions as acts of incitement and invitation to join in that struggle. We adopt a superhero persona in order to communicate in a pop-culture vernacular so that all may understand our mission: to summon forth the hero that lies within all of us so that we may together rise up in a broad-based popular movement to challenge entrenched power and initiate the radical political, social, and economic transformations that this critical moment demands.
