Every advert in a London Underground station has been replaced with cat photos


a) it would look amazing

b) it’s exhausting being asked to buy stuff all the time

‘Wouldn’t it be great not to worry about the holiday we can’t afford, the car we don’t need, or the body we don’t have? Imagine a world where public spaces made you feel good.

Memefest PLEASURE: The Pleasure of Drugs

Just saw this fantastic news. Police caught a man who they thought was smuggling amphetamines - but now, he was trafficking another (dangerous and highly pleasurable) substance.

Here something very relevant to our PLEASURE outlines:

"Cartels and mafia are not about ideology, they are about business and this makes them so much more dangerous. As Islamic State is losing its ground it is worth remembering that its power and now the evening of it have been strongly tied to the oil business. As long as it was able to control oil fields in Iraq and Syria and have Turkey turning the blind eye for it to export the oil, it was powerful. In comparison to oil, cocaine fields ain’t going nowhere, the white petroleum of our time will always find and build its pipelines. Whether it is the underground tunnels bellow the Mexico-US border, submarines in the gulf of Mexico, containers on the transatlantic ships, the stomach of a human mule, planes, helicopters, cars, trucks… Where there is a movement, there can be a cocaine movement."

"Designers have played an active role in creating digital and physical borders to prevent refugees entering Europe". But can and should the refugee crisis be treated as a design problem?

This is good. While "critical making" here is focusing on product design mostly, the concept can be extended to visual communication. Relevant to what we do: http://current.ecuad.ca/what-is-critical-making

Addiction as the driving model of Facebook: http://nyti.ms/1N6K0rO

See here our festival outlines:

Capitalisms business models are based on addiction. New clothes, new technology, permanently new and innovative strategies in institutions, new cars, new mobile phones new this and that, are what we can see everyday. And our addictions rising- just think of our addiction from screens and social media and the internet- the perfect complementary drug to the pharmaceuticals- the legal drug of choice- creating an atmosphere, but never demanding, or even destroying – focus or attention. While “expanding horizons”, “exploring consciousness” and "hedonism" used to be a quality of drugs, pharmaceuticals are correctives, ironing out inappropriate behaviour. No wonder the drugged masses like to do the “right thing”. Little pleasure the pharmaceuticals give us, we must add as well.

Nina Tratnik

Birth year







I am passionate in the art of visual storytelling. My work projects my love for music, literature, photography and design. Inspired by the aesthetic of the cities and the cultures that surround them, my career objective is to be capable of depicting the everyday beauty I see and comment on the nature of our society. Throughout my work experiences and projects, I have learned that collaborating and connecting with colleagues have enhanced my position as an artist of theatre, expanding it to all fields of creation.

I have joined the Memfest community becasue i am interested in

Social development through artistic point of view or statement. My work is my tool to express not only creativity but first and foremost to show my feelings towards the world I live in. Since I consider art to be the best reflection of a community, society and the people themselves I feel therefor art is perhaps best presented when people have worked together to create it.
