This wall of dicks shows stock market fluctuations
One of the standouts from this year’s ITP Thesis show is this wall of 81 “erectable” penises that, in addition to reacting to the movements of those viewing it, also charts the fluctuations of the stock market.
According to creator Peiqi Su, the initial motivation was to “study one of the oldest and probably the most attractive thing that humans interact with.” But while it’s easy to poke fun at the novel idea, the wall’s construction is actually quite elaborate and impressive—each dick was 3D printed, and is made of six segments driven by motors and equipped with a sensor to respond to movement.
It can also be used to represent data, like charting the stock market. What better way to find out that you’re being economically fucked than via a wall of cocks?
Here’s a video of the wall in action, from Su’s Vimeo page.
