I have watched Citizenfour http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4044364/
Few days ago. Its brilliant. I made me also install encription software to my phone. Can everyone please install "Signal" on their IPhones and "Textsecure" on your Android? It's free... https://whispersystems.org Seriously I am not really keen on getting non encripted sms and I'd prefer to talk via encripted chanells as well. For it to work both parties need to have this installed.

About me


Name Oliver Vodeb

I am an Academic at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne. I teach and research mostly in the field of communication design. I approach design/communication from a critical interdisciplinary perspective and I investigate theoretical, strategic, conceptual and "hands on" practice.

I have joined the Memfest community becasue i am interested in

I have been here from the very beginning. I am interested in communication/
design for social and environmental change.
I name such communication
socially responsive communication.

Broadly speaking iam interested in visual communication, photography, sociological aspects of communication, design and media.

Iam interested in institutionalised forms of communication like for example communication done by design/communication studios and advertising agencies as well as non institutionalised forms of communication like tactical media or broader aspects of media activism.

In a slightly more academic language:

I am interested in how critical social theory can illuminate the complex processes of production, distribution and reception of public (visual) communication in order to generate public communication as a responsible social, political, economic and cultural practice.

I am particularly interested in relations between concepts of response-ability and communication effectiveness, and the social construction of design and other forms of pubic communication as profession, practice and praxis within academia, the market environments and non-institutionalised communities.
