News Cycles: Atmospheric Capture

Mary-Louise Totton's avatar Mary-Louise Totton

National news of 2018 has been dominated by tawdry details, slurs, incredible revelations about incompetence and corruption. The spectacles grow organically, madly and much effort is expended to cover up and flatter. Grids (usually stable networks) are wrapped in cheap, riotously colored plastic raffia--representing the national circus of lies and ridiculous claims--and rotate forward. A round metal plate with seductive skirting sprawls below. The armature of this structure is bamboo--a plant renowned for its flexibility and strength. The plastic wrappings have key carbon dioxide cleaning properties ("atmospheric capture"). Polypropylene raffia ("PP raffia"), bamboo, metal ceiling plate.
