Anti-Trump Light Projection by Robin Bell

I first became aware of this project when I spotted a still that read “Experts Agree: Trump Is A Pig.” and I shamelessly adopted it as my Facebook cover page. When other similar images, uncredited, began appearing on social media, it didn’t take long for me to discover the artist behind them.

Last night artist Robin Bell displayed text and images on the facade of the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., that began with “Emoluments Welcome” accompanied by animation of the flags of nations where President Trump has business projects.

The light-projected message was followed by one that read “Pay Trump Bribes Here,” with an arrow that pointing to the hotel’s front door.

This was followed by yet another that featured an excerpt of the emoluments clause from the U.S. Constitution. The clause which restricts members of the U.S. government from receiving gifts from foreign powers.

And then yet another one. The projected messages were all part of an act of protest by artist, filmmaker and video editor Robin Bell, known for his guerilla light projections.

Here’s the video of Robin Bell’s messages of protest projected against Trump’s Washington, D.C., hotel Monday night in his piece named Emoluments Welcome:
