Speaking of space and place, here is something that I have been following and meaning to document for a while: bodiless protests. I am afraid I can’t afford to write it up in a more synthesised manner at the moment, but I thought I’d at least put everything in one place.
# Patent for “robots for picketing” (March 2013)
# World’s first hologram protest in Madrid against the country’s new “gag law” (April 2015)
# Amnesty “ghost rally” in Gwanghwamun (February 2016)
# Projection of “@jack is #complicit” on Twitter HQ (Jan 2018)
# Projection of “This is not normal” and “sh*thole” (with emojis!) on the Trump Hotel in Washington DC (Jan 2018)
# #WeAreWatching project against institutionalised racism (September 2016)
# The internet is mostly bots (December 2018)
