Propaganda Podium

The Propaganda Podium (2005) allows users to select from a pre-determined list of interchangeable words to create a broad generalization. Pressing — or pounding a fist on — the large red button causes a synthesized voice to read the proclamation over a set of speakers. Possible statements include such gems as, “I love America”, “They hate truth” and “You believe in democracy”.
