The Teddy Ruxpin Social Experiment Will Scar Your Soul!

…Oh, so this is what hell looks like.

What you are seeing here is a room with several dozen Teddy Ruxpin Dolls nailed to the walls. The dolls are rigged to the internet where they are then used to read off people’s thoughts that have been sent out through social media. They call it a celebration of our ability to communicate our every thought and emotion. I call is a violation of the Geneva convention. I don’t think I could last more than five minutes in that room without soiling myself.

Official Video Description
Thanks to the interconnectivity provided by the internet people have never before been better able to express their emotions to the world community. Everyday hundreds of thousands of people use a myriad of blogs and other online outlets to discuss how they are feeling on an endless array of topics ranging from superficial thoughts on the quality ones ‘hair day’ to extremely intimate considerations of love, betrayal or even whether or not they should end their lives. Literally every subtle increment on the scale of the human emotional condition is expressed but sadly due to the tremendous scale of information available many of these expressions are buried within a sea of noise. With T,E.D. my aim is to give a literal voice and physical presence to a portion of this content as it is expressed in real-time.
