Rachel Brown: Illuminator

The Illuminator is an art-activist collective comprised of visual artists, educators, filmmakers, and technologists living and working in New York City.

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. 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.

Rachel has been a member of the horizontally-structured, worker-owned coop since 2014, and has presented the collective's work and taught our guerrilla projection tactics at various conferences including Open Engagement, the Allied Media Conference and the Hemispheric Institute for Performance and Politics' Encuentros.
