American artist Michael James Schneider has found a playful, nonconformist and surprising way to respond to the many negative comments on social networks.
While usually the messages of the profiles of those who pollute the networks with racist, sexist, reactionary messages remain unnoticed, Michael James Schneider challenges them with his graphic creations made of inflatable balloons.
“I’m inspired by comments on the networks, I’m trying to hijack this medium. Balloons were something that worked on the networks, they are often used in weddings and prenatal parties where the genre of children is revealed, so they were a disruptive and natural way to deal with this process of deconstructing preconceived ideas. I like the contrast between deep, funny or provocative quotes written with objects considered accessories, secondary.”
Exposed on the street, these balloons give an air of celebration, but in reality then spread messages of political commitment, made accessible thanks to the lightness that comes from these colorful objects.
A different and creative way to respond to criticism, innovative that leaves no room for further answers. Below you can find some of his answers!
