SMALL CAPS presents Jordan Scott’s “Clearance Process” with an audio composition by Jason Starnes and a companion essay by Alison Dean

SMALL CAPS is pleased to present Clearance Processa multimedia chapbook by Jordan Scott with an audio composition by Jason Starnes.

In April 2015, Jordan Scott spent five days touring the Guantanamo Bay Detention Center. Clearance Process is a record of that time–a photo and audio essay that asks “How can we listen to redaction? How can we listen to entire systems of it?”

The chapbook is available for purchase through the free TCR APP (available for iOS and Android) or via Pocketmags.

Alison Dean’s “Penitent Spy,” a companion essay to Clearance Process, is available to read here.
