visual communication practice

Love affaire

Description of idea

Describe your idea and concept of your work in relation to the festival outlines:

The main point was simple. Countries are trying to control oil cause they are dependant. I wanted to depicked this game of: I want I seduce, I take... The opposition of Love and War context makes this image funny, but still relevant.

What kind of communication approach do you use?

Humoristic approach tend to let people make their own opinion, cause You don't have the weight of culpability or moral pressure. I often like to have fun with a conflictual subject.

What are in your opinion concrete benefits to the society because of your communication?

Rethink the use of car and transportation choices we can make. Also, a bit of consideration on how the governments manage international policies and conflicts. If it leeds someone to read on the subject: bingo!

What did you personally learn from creating your submitted work?

I had to confirm my own position on the subject, even if it was already there. Read a bit on the subject on the news for inspiration. It developped my ability to use subversive ideas to communicate.

Why is your work, GOOD communication WORK?

I'm sure the message is very clear and communicated in a creative way. Sometimes by making people spend a bit of time on their own considerations they might different choices in their life.

Where and how do you intent do implement your work?

It's on my personnal web site, but I'd like to publish in a news paper or a book or organisation's web site.

Did your intervention had an effect on other Media. If yes, describe the effect? (Has other media reported on it- how? Were you able to change other media with your work- how?)
