The portal linking New York City and Dublin has been closed. The art installation was intended to stream for six months with no interruptions to create an uninterrupted visual bridge — it only lasted six days. Most people had some nice wholesome fun with it. People played rock paper scissors across continents, made signs,danced, and were generally delighted by the joy of a collective experience… But of course, a couple people had to ruin it.

    Humans are, for the most part, a failed species.

    I think the art piece exemplifies actual human behavior. Pulling the piece is censorship to that. Definitely puts it the running for both worst and best art piece of the modern era.

    Who cares it was a horrible idea. They should have had a gate ro enter it, and a bodyguard. It should have faced a wall to avoid privacy breaches and recording the street without consent of people in the vicinity. It should in summary have been an art exhibit for tourists and locals alike to enter while being gated and guarded

    Putting a useless guardrail doesn’t do anything

    Or even better put it inside a museum

    People won’t do anything indecent inside a museum

      Most of the point was that it was 24/7 and anyone could walk up anytime and see other people. Putting it in a museum would mean maybe you’d see a few people during certain hours of the day but nowhere near the goal

      @VolonidPlus  ya well that use case turn out great didn’t it. Lmao ur funny. Unregulated access led to indecency and disgusting heinous acts. Which is the logical predicted outcome

      Therefore who cares

      It was a beyond horrible idea from the get go

      Museum or never deploy

      @@Car_Fanatic Holy Reddit brain, i just told you the point of it. I’d rather have it go away then be in a museum it’s the entire goal to connect people and see other people not a building

    Waste of time and money. Distraction. Portals can also be used for demonic activity and bringing entities from another dimension. They know this perfectly well.

    Thing is. This is a sign of our times and society. It represents a minority of bad actors sure. But it’s still a part of who we are. Hiding that won’t make it go away
