Latest ABOUTS(01/07/08)I just noticed that the text and links and website is years out of date.
With this in mind here is a new 'About this Site':
contains work that is about causes of contemporary eco-systemic
(Capital/Profit) rather than work that documents effects (shopping
corporate abuses : war )
ARCHIVED ABOUTSThis site contains all the stickers/stencils/posters and flyers that have been done over the last few years. Some I still agree with, some i've changed my mind on, i.e 'Fight Globalisation!' is a sentiment which doesn't make any sense - Globalisation is an empty term which means different things to different people. To some it means the fantastic and postive benefits of cultural exchange and global connectivity like the internet. To others its the removal of indigineous industries and the growth of multinational supa-brands in our high streets.
It's easier for people to design their own media, due to cheaper computers, but the flip side of this is that Street level media is increasingly being co-opted by savvy marketers . Public space is ours, so the more non commercial messages the better - its better than banging your head against a brick wall.
