Star-Spangled Banner

DESIGN / WEB-DEVELOPMENT

In 2017 I produced 'The Star-Spangled Banner – Sorry Not Working Today', a live artwork embedded in a mobile optimised webpage. It uses a live Twitter API feed linked to Donald Trump’s Twitter account. Everytime the 45th president of the United States tweets, the neon sign cuts out and turns off, revealing a message written on the wall behind the sign, which is only legible when the sign is not glowing. The piece is unassuming, when viewed at first glance it is just a flickering neon sign depicting an American flag. However, it is underpinned by a powerful message, which changes the very context of the flag and what it represents.
