Inflated Egos political installation

by | May 5, 2015 | 0 comments

A political installation by Chris Cairns and Is This Good? where candidates’ heads get bigger and smaller in realtime depending on how they’re doing in the General Election 2015 race.

Featuring the seven candidates who appeared in the first televised debate. Balloon head size is driven by the latest polls and twitter activity, before displaying live election results.

Go and see the installation on the 4th and 5th of May at the Hoxton Gallery, 9 Kingsland Road, Shoreditch and 6th – 9th May in the window of Partizan, 40-42 Lexington Street, Soho.
