For a second year, the German street art collective Mentalgassi has made photo lenticulars for Amnesty International.
They’re a little like visual illusions — when you walk by the photo comes into view.
TIME’s 2011 Person of the Year is The Protester
“As soon as you cross the line of fear it just happens,” explained Shima’a Helmy (PopTech 2011) in detailing how she began protesting in Egypt and has become one of the country’s youngest activists who led that country’s uprising.
Now a full-time human rights activist, Helmy joined filmmakers and friends Micah Garen and Marie-Helene Carlton onstage at PopTech to talk about their collaboration on an upcoming documentary film If. The film will explore what it’s like being a young revolutionary through the eyes of four different Egyptian women (including Helmy), although as Garen states, their story is far from over.
As a second component for my OWS/Anon project, I’m doing my best to laterally network and share my work, both sociospatially and geospatially. On the real-world front, today I printed my posters and will be hanging them around campus tomorrow. On the internet, I’ve just published them to my flickr. They’re well-tagged and I’ve added them to some groups. I’ve also shared some of them on facebook and of course I’ve been documenting the process on tumblr. Lastly, I’ve added the images to occupydesign, who asked me for the full-res for the stats one. They are even featuring it on the front page right now. (Update: they seem to have rejected the “Time Warner thanks you” poster.)
I’m interested and yet slightly nervous to see how they are interpreted, because they are, as I have stated before, intended to be both critical and encouraging of the movement.
to sum up:
