Opposite Day began shortly after election day, 2016, to counter-balance threats to information platforms. This publication includes writings found on social media: an efficient and perverted tool that is under surveillance, rife with false reporting, while also essential for individual expression and for calls to political resistance. As an annual publication, Opposite Day will serve as a record of its time, and is founded on the idea that archived analyses of the present will inform future decisions, like the ones that lead to the 2016 presidential election.
O.D. includes essays and articles by artists, writers, and the creative community, in reaction to the current US administration. Alongside long-form articles are printed social media posts that reflect the oppositional tone of their moment. Elevating a community's public posts to print, O.D. crystalizes thoughts which dearly need a trustworthy place to land.
