I Hate That I Love The Hater Box

DesignBoom recently received this piece of awesomeness through its DYI Submissions program: the Hater Box. Stay with me, fellow haters, because you are going to love this one.

Designed by Marseille-based French artist ParseError, the Hater Box is a mechanical contraption that contains an split-flap display capable of showing 45 words like “selfies,” “internet,” “art,” “genders,” “work,” “borders,” and the all-time classics for true haters: “that” and “everything.”

The words are randomly changed by a motor, but the preceding word always remains the same. From my perspective, ParseError forgot to include a few necessary words, like “standing desk,” and “iPhone X,” and I hate him for it, but that’s ok because this is his toy and, sadly, it’s not for sale (I would contribute to a Kickstarter).

According to DesignBoom, “the piece is a reflection on the politically correct, the censorship, the cult of our personalities, the evolution of societal norms or the outburst of anger at the time of social networks.” Don’t you just hate artsy-farsty artist statements?JD
