This is good. While "critical making" here is focusing on product design mostly, the concept can be extended to visual communication. Relevant to what we do: http://current.ecuad.ca/what-is-critical-making

Addiction as the driving model of Facebook: http://nyti.ms/1N6K0rO

See here our festival outlines:

Capitalisms business models are based on addiction. New clothes, new technology, permanently new and innovative strategies in institutions, new cars, new mobile phones new this and that, are what we can see everyday. And our addictions rising- just think of our addiction from screens and social media and the internet- the perfect complementary drug to the pharmaceuticals- the legal drug of choice- creating an atmosphere, but never demanding, or even destroying – focus or attention. While “expanding horizons”, “exploring consciousness” and "hedonism" used to be a quality of drugs, pharmaceuticals are correctives, ironing out inappropriate behaviour. No wonder the drugged masses like to do the “right thing”. Little pleasure the pharmaceuticals give us, we must add as well.

The Boston Globe recently published a fake cover imagining a time when Donald Trump would be president. The first major daily doing it as the Yes Men did it with their fake New York times - although this was an art project. Art imitates life imitates art imitating life....Here more: http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/apr/10/trump-president-boston-globe-predicts-news-fake-front-page

Memefest 2016 Festival theme: PLEASURE


The pleasure of drugs:

At the time, I was writing a book about the politics of drug prohibition. I started to ask Ehrlichman a series of earnest, wonky questions that he impatiently waved away. “You want to know what this was really all about?” he asked with the bluntness of a man who, after public disgrace and a stretch in federal prison, had little left to protect. “The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”

Description

I graduated from the Alberta College of Art + Design in 2012 with a Bachelor of Design in Visual Communications Design. After a brief break to backpack through 9 countries in Asia by myself I moved across Canada to Toronto, Ontario to pursue my Master of Design at York University. My graduate research has been a visual exploration in addressing the mass commodification of factory farm animals, countering the absent referent of meat products and looking at ways to challenge the human gaze in the power dynamic between human as subject over factory farm animal as object. In the last 3 years I have had the opportunity to have a solo exhibition and a group exhibition of my work, self publish my first book on homelessness and am now working on my second, and have been invited to lecture at two conferences on the role of art direction in social cause campaigns. I have high hopes of incorporating the criticality in my creative work I have developed over the last few years into a future full time position in my field.
