Talk description:
What can happen when we create work for the betterment of our community? By employing digital tools, artists and designers possess the ability to hack the world of public advertising, level the playing field, and reveal important, and often hidden, information to the public. We will examine historical and contemporary practitioners of design activism as well as the What Heroin Sounds Like Project. The will also discuss the first amendment as a powerful communication tool, “guerrilla projection”, and our ability to influence social and political awareness through the implementation of simple digital tools.
