Parrhesiastic Play

For the project, chairs and sculptural letters can be placed in public areas; passersby are then free to rearrange in them into different forms, words and phrases. By linking physical spaces with a live webcam network, Parrhesiastic Play gives people a stage to “perform” before the cameras. It’s a playful way to comment on the rise of surveillance while interacting with a large audience. Graphic assistance: Vien Nguyen. Digital fabrication: Thayer Shop, Dartmouth.
