Apologize to America
Apologize to America

Apologize to America is a participatory Augmented Reality project powered by a custom Snapchat lens. Through performative video recordings, the Apologize2America Lens will allow the participant to issue an apology while having the 45th President of the United States' image mapped and overlaid onto their face. The technology implemented here is intentionally not a deep fake. The goal is not to convincingly produce expressions of regret on his behalf, but rather to imagine and produce a fantastical future in which 45 is held accountable.

A part of SPACES' Time-Based Arts Program, Participants will be able to submit their apologies, which will be published and archived via the Apologize to America website and are encouraged to share on their personal social media accounts using the #apologize2america or #trumpology. Videos may be shared on SPACES' website or featured on our social media pages!
