Shadow Sign For Bedroom Protest invites participants to share their thoughts about climate crisis via a shadow sign, from their bedrooms or homes. By cutting a thought or message into paper, a sign is made that can be shared by shining a flashlight (or cell-phone light) through the paper onto a wall or sheet, and taking a photo or screen capture of the image. Participants are encouraged to upload the photo or screen capture of their shadow sign into a mosaic that is created from the collection of all participants shadow signs at www.potentcity.space. The algorithm that organizes these shadow signs calculates their placement with the goal of creating an Earth shape. The goal is to see the Earth image grow as it integrates new shadow signs and illustrates a planet in protest over the climate crisis.
