“The Hate Shield Project”                                                   WORLD PREMIERE


Artist Matthew Terrell debuted “The Hate Shield” in October 2019 at Atlanta Pride. This mobile, soundproof wall blocked both sight and sound of hate preachers at Pride. The back side of the walls were mirrored, so the preachers could only see themselves. The project significantly reduced the loudness and hearing distance of the hate preachers, which resulted in more people having a positive experience at Pride. Usually, the preachers yell at passersby, pick on people, say hurtful things, and try to provoke violence. “The Hate Shield” neutralized that.


During the deployment, Terrell and his team wore body cameras, to capture the experience up close. This video is a first-hand account of what it was like to be in the loud, hateful melee, and the chaos that was up close. One peculiar thing happened once “The Hate Shield” went up… the scene became much more joyful. Even humorous. With “The Hate Shield” blocking both sight and sound of the preachers, what they were doing became a comical, futile endeavor. By disarming their hate, their words and actions only served to make them look small and ridiculous. The footage captured on the body camera reveals this shift.


In this art installation, Terrell will use the actual original panels of “The Hate Shield” to create a soundproof pod, where viewers can watch a short, first-person POV documentary about the project. The original body camera footage will be edited together with an introductory interview to give viewers an in-the-drivers-seat experience of taking part in the counter-protest at Atlanta Pride. This short video will be played on loop, so viewers can pop in whenever they want to view the show. This would be ideal for people to do while they wait between screenings, or for people who arrive early to a show.
