Anonymous, “All Seeing Trump”

An anonymous artist has created an interactive mobile installation modeled after the Zoltar carnival game in the Tom Hanks movie “Big”. The Trump as a fortune (or misfortune) teller is complete with eyes that light up and cards that tell the user’s future. By having the machine recite Trump’s quotes nearly verbatim, the silliness of his policies is heightened. The work forces us to look at what the future would be like if Trump were President and the dark humour of this piece is something that Edward Keinholz would appreciate. The machine has its own website and an affiliated Twitter account. According to CNN, “All Seeing Trump” was fabricated by Characters Unlimited, makers of Zoltar.

James Osterer, “Emotion Download”

British sculptor and photographer James Osterer has created a compelling effigy of Trump, made almost entirely out of animal parts. Although only a photo of the sculpture was displayed at his Hong Kong show, it was crafted by using pig, fish, and other animal parts to create a monstrosity as grotesque as its subject. This isn’t the first time that Osterer has worked with food, but for Trump the medium is especially fitting.
