In this moving image, made of 6 sequential photos by Marjo Wright, taken for the 2021 rEvolver Theatre Festival, the artists are holding white pillows in front of a shipping container painted blue with black lined white graffiti lettering. Minah is wearing bright red lipstick that matches her pants. Dangling triangular earrings with pink knitting swing above her indigo rain jacket. Wryly is wearing a black toque that matches the pants. A green rubber rain coat frames a pink and blue sweater. Wryly strikes a pillow to Minah’s legs. Minah strikes a pillow to Wryly’s back with a smile. Wryly takes the toque off with a smile. Minah strikes the pillow to Wryly’s face with a tough smile. Wryly’s face goes from tough to ecstatic.

Presentation History.

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.
