Artist/activist Robin Bell has made a name for himself with his provocative work utilizing light projections cast on government buildings around the U.S. The latest target of his work is Attorney General Jeff Sessions by way of the Department of Justice building.
On May 17, Bell used the face of the DOJ and FBI buildings to cast an image of Sessions in a KKK hood, referencing Sessions’ noted history of racial remarks. The image contained text that read “#SessionsMustGo” and “FireSessions,” as well as the line “I thought the KKK was OK until I learned that they smoked pot,” which was a statement Sessions made in the 1980s.

Along with the Sessions piece, Bell projected images of Rex Tillerson, Nikki Haley and Scott Pruit, giving each of them a creepy set of black demonic eyes, with the messages “#WeNeedToSeeTheMemo” and “Impeach” included.
