A necessary read on how machines, software and AI are changing the culture of photography and image

Invisible Images (Your Pictures Are Looking at You)
By Trevor Paglen

http://thenewinquiry.com/essays/invisible-images-your-pictures-are-looking-at-you/

So what is the future of photography and communication design? And how should we change what we teach students in both areas to remain both fields as a relevant body of knowledge- practiced by humans?

This is super interesting and important to read. Trumps communication culture is based on "black FB posts"- and labor exploitation via design crowd sourcing platforms in Asia.

Every advert in a London Underground station has been replaced with cat photos


Why?

a) it would look amazing

b) it’s exhausting being asked to buy stuff all the time

‘Wouldn’t it be great not to worry about the holiday we can’t afford, the car we don’t need, or the body we don’t have? Imagine a world where public spaces made you feel good.

Memefest PLEASURE: The Pleasure of Drugs

Just saw this fantastic news. Police caught a man who they thought was smuggling amphetamines - but now, he was trafficking another (dangerous and highly pleasurable) substance.

Here something very relevant to our PLEASURE outlines:

"Cartels and mafia are not about ideology, they are about business and this makes them so much more dangerous. As Islamic State is losing its ground it is worth remembering that its power and now the evening of it have been strongly tied to the oil business. As long as it was able to control oil fields in Iraq and Syria and have Turkey turning the blind eye for it to export the oil, it was powerful. In comparison to oil, cocaine fields ain’t going nowhere, the white petroleum of our time will always find and build its pipelines. Whether it is the underground tunnels bellow the Mexico-US border, submarines in the gulf of Mexico, containers on the transatlantic ships, the stomach of a human mule, planes, helicopters, cars, trucks… Where there is a movement, there can be a cocaine movement."
