Art of the Possible: Contemporary Art 1: Propaganda and Art
Last year Shepard Fairey (formerly known as "the Obey Giant guy") went from Art Star to well... "that Obama poster guy", and people who more-or-less understood his work (but not necessarily the impact or context in which it functioned) argued about the merits of it. Art or propaganda? Establishing, for some reason, that the two are mutually exclusive. There are a lot of artists whose work functions dually on this level. Fairey is joined by anonymous street artists like Banksy, and the kids who have nothing better to do than to scale buildings and bridges in search of the next tag. This is the next wave of ... market research, surveys and trends
Yosi Sergant And The Art Of Right Wing Hysteria | Neon Tommy
It was late September 2009, and Yosi Sergant was sitting in Washington National Airport, waiting for his flight. His sister Shira was about to give birth to a baby girl, and he was flying home to Los Angeles to be there for it. He wore a turtleneck and a fedora. He looked nothing like a government employee, and in fact, he no longer was one.  He noticed that people were looking at him. And then looking up, behind him, and then back at him. Yosi turned around, and there, on all the television screens, was Lou Dobbs, and in a box, was a photo of Yosi. Underneath the photo were the words, "Left-Wing Propagandist." ... market research, surveys and trends


City Space: A Semiotic and Visual Exploration of Graffiti and ...
The city as physical entity and symbolic construction is in a continuous cycle of development, destruction, and re-development. Cities establish a vision and a symbolic conception of place that predominantly protects the economic and social interests of the private sector and owners of capital. The symbolic economy of the city is of great economic and political value to groups with vested interests in maintaining the status quo and promoting their vision of the city. Through civic bolsterism, Vancouver's image as clean, beautiful and safe is protected and understood as essential for the city's economic prosperity and ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Graffiti depicts frustration, hope
On a soggy Friday night, the graffiti artist known as ``Jerry'' scooped up a half-dozen aerosol cans from the back of his Toyota RAV4, placed them at the base of a cinder block wall in this Port-au-Prince suburb and proceeded to spray. Four minutes later, the work was finished -- a map of quake-cracked Haiti with a weeping eye in the center -- and then a bonus: a quake victim with her two children, a tearful son in tattered shorts pleading with an upturned palm in a rainstorm. The work was signed ``Jerry.'' ``They can only hope that help is coming soon,'' Jerry Rosembert Moise -- better known as ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Can't...stop...buying... | Ask MetaFilter
Seems to me advertising does a lot of harm, making people buy stuff they don't need, want stuff they can't afford, and reinforcing ridiculous notions of what life should be like. So why don't we just ban it? Has this ever been seriously considered or even attempted? What would the consequences be? Would there be a recession as demand fell through the floor? Many businesses (especially TV/Radio) would have to find new business models, but with the rise of new media these obstacles don't seem insurmountable. There's been a lot of talk about banning kids advertising/tobacco advertising, why don't we ...
Modern Propaganda | Ask MetaFilter
What techniques do advertisers use to manipulate the public and convince people to buy their brand or support their cause? I'm interested in the overt and covert methods of persuasion that are frequently employed, and I'm looking for all kinds of examples across a wide variety of media (print, radio, TV, etc.). Specific examples? Here are some general ones. Sex. Fear. Conformity (everyone has/wants one!) My favorite is when advertisers try to sell to new parents because advertisers know parents want the "best" for their kids. When I was little, my mom used to wash our hair in the bathtub and rinse it by pouring water ...
