“Censored” is an installation inspired by the philosophy of Chinese artist, Ai Weiwei and how he communicates with his followers. The portrait of Ai Weiwei is composed of 400 cards that represent 400 Tweets from Ai Weiwei. Users interact with this wall of cards simply by taking away messages they respond to. As instructed on the back of the card, each person is invited to upload a photo of the installation via Instagram after removing a card in order to help record a virtual progress of how the entire piece evolves over time. The more people interact with the installation, the faster the message underneath the cards is unveiled to the public. This is a student project from Art Center College of Design. Read Less
