There’s a little rebel in all of us. Today, Lannie illustrated this in a presentation of her works with an underlining theme of social commentary. Among the pieces shown are:
7 deadly sins
Four innocent objects manipulated through hyperrealistic touch-up to evoke sexuality, a subliminal method often used in consumer product advertising. These large prints are currently gracing one of our studio walls.
War & Peace
We don’t need another lie
The screen is yours
A technology-based public intervention exploring democratic uses of public media and anonymous participation in a public discourse. This installation uses a DIY mobile to web technology to enable publishing private SMS messages to public screens.
A culture jam highlighting the cultural pervasiveness of Starbucks. Hundreds of coffee insulation sleeves were remixed before returned to various Starbucks locations. The logo was modified, and caution text “Careful the beverage you’re about to enjoy is extremely hot” changed to “…. is gently pervasive”.
