This exhibit would take photographs of passers-by at random intervals and display both the photograph and an accusation of a randomly chosen truly horrible crime on a large, high- mounted screen. For example the photograph and the words "this person killed a child with a blowtorch"

EDIT: Fixed pedantry error in title.

       70s-era SNL used to do something similar to this with shots of random audience members before ad breaks.

       I did this with animals once, getting hold of a series of stock photos of various creatures, and then blanking out their eyes with one of those black-censor-strips - and captioning these resultant photos with some randomly generated crime or other. My favorites usually turned out to be the ones with eyes on stalks such as snails and lobsters.

       The screen should be mounted on your person, perhaps a T-shirt display.

       So not an idea about car salesmen then?

       Important distinctions: slander is spoken, libel is written. Therefore, this is an autolibeller. You could, however, avoid these petty and pedantic hairsplittings and call it instead the AutoDefamatator.

       //libel is written// libel is published. I thought.

       Depends on yr jurisdiction, but the key thing is that it is communicated to another person, rather than specifically published. But then, perhaps that is what in England (and England-derived legal systems) is meant by published.
