The Scream, 1895

The Scream, 1895 Edvard Munch

I’ve begun dreading the news on Twitter each morning, and have retreated to art as a place of refuge. I was so relieved to find that one of my favorite artworks feels the same way. @infinite_scream is a Twitter account impersonating Edvard Munch’s famous work “The Scream;” it responds to any mentions with a shriek (example: AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH). According to @NoraReed, creator of the account, “the greatest thing about @infinite_scream is that the world is terrible, so every time it tweets it will appear to be reacting to your timeline.Sometimes it helps just to let it out.
