I Made A Cloud Lamp That Triggers A Storm Every Time Donald Trump Makes A Tweet

The Political Lamp, by ParseError is a connected cloud lamp that reacts in real time to the tweets from Donald Trump, and other political events on Twitter.

The artist had this to say about setting the Political Lamp to follow Trump’s tweets.

The choice of setting the Political Lamp to follow the tweets of Donald Trump is explained by the fact that he perfectly embodies a dangerous era, beyond the notion of idiocracy, popularized by the movie of the same name. A world where the words of one man, released without reflection and with spontaneity on a global social network, can endanger the fate of millions by spreading the ghost of nuclear war on the planet.

 

Dearcatcallers

Fed up with being catcalled on the street 20 year old student Noah Jansma decided to do something about it. Throughout the month of September she took a selfie with every catcaller who harassed her and captioned them with the words they each used.

“By juxtaposing the catcallers’ callous, unashamed grins with her own exhausted, painfully familiar expression, Jansma shows the world just how frequent, real, and disturbing these experiences are for women everywhere. She also gains power over them, though, by documenting their actions and putting them on display for the whole world to see. Though her own experiment has ended, she has opened the @dearcatcallers Instagram page for submissions in hopes of creating a global dialogue on the collective struggle women face” – Giadre, Bored Panda
