The Transformers have joined Extinction Rebellion! They’ve cast aside ancient grudges, thrown down their weapons and picked up placards to fight for our future. This interactive installation invites you to get crafty and create your own tiny protest sign for a robot to hold.
The Robot Rebellion has organised themselves into 8 blocs:
The Emergency Services bloc is proclaiming the Climate Emergency loud and clear. The Animal and Insect blocs implore us to protect the natural world before the endangered species are gone forever. The Military bloc is calling on the governments of the world to redirect defense and space exploration budgets towards climate solutions. The Mining bloc is going on strike from fossil fuel extraction and instead helping to build a better future. The Shipping and Aviation blocs demand zero carbon transport solutions and a reduction in conspicuous consumption. The Road Vehicle bloc is calling for us to end our obsession with cars as status symbols and to embrace alternative fuel sources.
Which bloc will you add your voice to?
This installation has been created especially for CHANGE Festival by artist and designer Liam O’Brien
