Currently, political vitriol is at an all-time high, voter participation has tumbled to a shocking low, and the 2016 primaries are raining down upon us like hail in a hurricane.
A satirical art piece about politics and the 2016 primaries, Mr. & Mrs. Politico Head lets you create your own ideal candidate. Mix and match the candidates’ features to your heart’s delight. No matter the combination you choose, they’ll all remain the same underneath!
On a deeper level, Mr. & Mrs. Politico Head challenges viewers to think critically about the presidential race as a whole. By blending the candidates with a beloved American toy, this project draws parallels between games and politics: Is this all an elaborate round of monopoly, reality TV, or charades? Do candidates simply put on whatever face necessary to win?
