ACTION: SANITIZE THE POWER
Null/void is a call to action for artists, doodlers, and visual culture editors to create a series of images that scrub symbols of political power from photographs mined from news and social media. The project asks news media consumers to physically manipulate, destabilize, and redact the ongoing invasive photographic record of the administration’s exertion and overreach.
- Download or save a photograph from your newsfeed that includes objects or symbols pointing to the current administration’s abuse of power and overreach
- Print your photograph
- Using an exacto, white acrylic paint, or simply a white out pen, excise the symbols of government power in your photograph
- Upload your revised photograph to social media using the hashtags #nullvoid #100daysaction and email a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org for possible inclusion in an editioned book
