ParseError's cloud lamp triggers a storm for every donald trump tweet

multidisciplinary designer ParseError redefines ‘political climate’ with his latest lamp design. the political lamp stirs up a thunderous storm for every  donald trump tweet in real-time. talk about pathetic fallacy! each tweet is materialized by a series of lightning roaring through the clouds, disturbing the soft glow of the lamp.



ParseError explains that donald trump ‘perfectly embodies a dangerous era, where the words of one man on a global social network can endanger the fate of millions.’ the idea behind the political lamp is to hide its mystical nature behind an aesthetically pleasing object, immediately modifying the observer’s behavior. the blue-hued lamp somewhat attributes human emotions to nature, communicating similar sentiments.

  • How progressive…

    kein Kunde says:
  • Does the lamp come in orange…?

    Andrew Anderson says:
  • If you had it synced with each lie that the pres. told, it would be a great 24 hour light!

    David A. says:
  • @ David A. so it should be fairly easy to name at least a dozen – go on.

    kein Kunde says:
  • Brilliant! Very symbolic of the power of the President and looming destruction of the United States. Its too bad Trumpeters have invaded this site and try to make some diversion argument about the press. One wrong work from the press means nothing. One wrong word from the most powerful man in the world can cause millions of lives lost.

    The dark cloud AKA Trumps routine morning Twitter storm is brilliant!

  • @Kevin J

    He said pres., not press. You should read through things twice before assuming such a defensive posture.
