64 Things To Worry About v2 (2017)

64 Things To Worry About is a new piece of furniture for the times we live in. It's grid of 64 lights each represent a facet of our world which individually represent troubling factors in our environment and society, which together represent a heat map of normality or apocalypse. 64TTWA is designed to be hung on the wall of your living room/dining room/kitchen as a replacement for TV, radio and other pervasive media. Each light on its face represents the real-time levels of various troubling elements in our environment, and society, across the planet (earthquakes, radioactivity, solar radiation, the prevalence of certain keywords on social media (crisis, war, hate....) etc.) The severity of these elements are graded by colour, green good/red bad, and provide an instant heat map of the condition of the world. Rather than trying to read between the lines of partisan and sensationalistic media sources, you can now just glance at 64 Things To Worry About and decide for yourself how your day is going to work out. Mostly green and blue? - go on about your day with a sense of calm. Mostly red or blank? - maybe it's time to stay at home and gather your loved ones.
