A three-story building. Long corridors. Almost empty. Its halls and bedrooms used to house large numbers of Latin American soldiers educated in violence by the United States government. The School of the Americas’ classrooms produced several of the most brutal dictators in Latin America and a systemic aggression that spread throughout the continent. Today, its walls contain a hotel, and their history is difficult to verbalize.
Artificial intelligence — fed with military manuals, archival images, the hotel’s architecture and the surrounding jungle — resonates with the vibration of walls that do remember. Immersed in memories trapped in these walls, an artificial intelligence will perform a journey in the sensation and memories of the walls.
