Open Poll: Reflecting on the Elections

A week before this historic election, Hive PS participated in a fast-paced competition hosted by the Van Alen Institute in New York City. We were invited, along with two other interdisciplinary teams, to participate in a one-day workshop that culminated with a public presentation, followed by a very interesting discussion with the jury and the audience. The title of the flash competition was 'Open Poll' and it aimed to challenge the problems of the current polling system.

In light of the current elections and the stunning results that have shocked the US and the world, we find it necessary to re-iterate the issues addressed during this workshop, and to look at the strategies proposed in retrospect, as well as to question how they relate to the current election.
