This is a photo intervention as well as a possible application of my patterns. Here the Healing Forced Family Separations Pattern is placed on the floor of the Northwest Detention Center, in Tacoma, WA. This detention center is run by the GEO Group which contracts with ICE. It is one of the country's largest privately run immigration prisons with 1,575 beds.
In this application the pattern brings healing support to the people forcibly separated from their families and held in the prison. It also in this virtual realm offers healing to the land where the detention center is placed, which absorbs human suffering.
