Conflict 1#

Jason and i are working on posters for this year LOVE:CONFLICT:IMAGINATION Memefest theme. Posters are conceptualized around the relation between the three words. We will try to create a open narration, that can be interpreted and reinterpreted by the viewer. Still we are providing a framework of reference to this years festival guidelines. We are experimenting with photography this time.

Here is one. I like it a lot. It was taken at Australia's Gold Coast resort. Where natural beauty and human culture meet: in conflict.

so this image means conflict and is taken from a triptych? I like that the conflict is showed with simplicity: the horizontal line is the nature and the vertical is human culture. And the irony is that our society is structured 'vertical', with many artificial laws.

I want just to add a reflection: is not LOVE already a CONFLICT - this with rational and unrational thinking?

this image means conflict, yes. it's one of the images we are considering in using in the poster triptych. posters are not completely finished yet, but should be by beginning of next week.

i agree very much with your comment about the vertical structure of our society. a great observation.

love is definitely already a conflict. but the question is what kind of conflict and how love is related to conflict in the sense that conflict can generate a different structure of our society.

thank you for this feedback!


Hey, welcome to the official Memefest blog!

Since 2003 we have been using a blog platform as tactical media to reflect, critique, comment and inform around the broad field of communication. Now in 2010 with our newly conceived on-line platform we hope that through time this space will evolve in a collaborative blog media with a wider group of contributors to the global discourse around social responsibility of media and communication. Stuff that you can find here is either original or carefully and originally edited from other sources.  There is a good chance that you will find things that will be of good use for you too if you follow us more regularly.

Of course we look at Memeblog as a dialogic platform. Your comments are encouraged and mostly welcome.

If you feel like collaborating in this: drop us a line: memefest at memefest dot org.
