“Whithervanes” by design duo rootoftwo (Cezanne Charles and John Marshall) is an installation consisting of four-foot tall internet-connected headless chickens perched on rooftops around the city. The devices – 21st century weathervanes – scan the Internet for alarmist keywords changing direction and color in response to the climate of fear propagated by the media. Designed to be interactive via social media, the public can add to the escalation of fear or attempt to counteract it by sending the messages to @whithervanes using either #keepcalm or #skyfalling.
