Occupy the Kitchen !

The Critique of Design Thinking is a bit naive, but there is a lot in here which deserves support. Quite a few things similar to our Memefest workshop approaches. The idea that good design is potentially solving problems created by bad design is one of them. Still what's missing is an emphasis on decolonization:

This is really worrying if we don't find an alternative. Its interesting because the growing distrust to media was mostly visible in advertising first. Now media as such will become distrusted but with potentially severe consequences.

Organizing for protest on Facebook will make you vulnerable as your activities are monitored and data fwd to police and other control agencies:

A necessary read on how machines, software and AI are changing the culture of photography and image

Invisible Images (Your Pictures Are Looking at You)
By Trevor Paglen

http://thenewinquiry.com/essays/invisible-images-your-pictures-are-looking-at-you/

So what is the future of photography and communication design? And how should we change what we teach students in both areas to remain both fields as a relevant body of knowledge- practiced by humans?

I have joined the Memfest community becasue i am interested in

Memefest me mostró que a través del diseño, yo también podría participar de una discusión real y necesaria acerca de lo que esta pasando con la comunicación visual en el mundo que habitamos.
No todo puede ser vendido, ni comprado. Para eso ya esta la publicidad.


Education

Diseñadora visual


Music I like

Amo la música, sin ella no puedo vivir.
Todo el buen Trip-hop.
Los clásicos del rock.
Y conmovedoras voces femeninas.


Books I like

Más que títulos, autores: Ernesto Sábato, Jorge Luis Borges, Samuel Beckett, Anton Chejov, José Saramago, Marguerite Yourcenar, Saul Bellow, Paul Auster y otros más... Leer me salva.
