Locust Projects will host the U.S. debut of Whithervanes, a Knight Foundation-funded project by the Detroit-based experimental design duo rootoftwo (Cezanne Charles and John Marshall). Unlike traditional weathervanes, these four-foot tall, internet-connected headless chickens change color and direction in response to the climate of fear propagated by the media. Mounted on the roofs of three local buildings across downtown, the Design District and Biscayne Boulevard, these sculptures scan the Internet for alarmist keywords, covering topics from violence to economic crises to natural disasters.
