Memefest 2016 Festival theme: PLEASURE


The pleasure of drugs:

At the time, I was writing a book about the politics of drug prohibition. I started to ask Ehrlichman a series of earnest, wonky questions that he impatiently waved away. “You want to know what this was really all about?” he asked with the bluntness of a man who, after public disgrace and a stretch in federal prison, had little left to protect. “The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”

Here is a great session on institutional critique. It is focused on art, but this stuff can be very well used for non art institutions as well. Its really important stuff for a imaginative process of redirecting communication/design and art.

"A few years ago, I was being shown around a large, very technologically advanced university in Asia by its proud president. As befitted so eminent a personage, he was flanked by two burly young minders in black suits and shades, who for all I knew were carrying Kalashnikovs under their jackets. Having waxed lyrical about his gleaming new business school and state-of-the-art institute for management studies, the president paused to permit me a few words of fulsome praise. I remarked instead that there seemed to be no critical studies of any kind on his campus. He looked at me bemusedly, as though I had asked him how many Ph.D.’s in pole dancing they awarded each year, and replied rather stiffly "Your comment will be noted." He then took a small piece of cutting-edge technology out of his pocket, flicked it open and spoke a few curt words of Korean into it, probably "Kill him.""

Economist Paul Mason's blockbuster manifesto Postcapitalism suggests that markets just can't organize products whose major input isn't labor or material, but information, and that means that, for the first time in history, it's conceivable that we can have a society based on abundance.

Description

I am an emerging graphic designer with a passion for craft, design and D.I.Y. I love exploring new ideas and using a variety of techniques, and am always keen to learn new things about design. My current workplace position as supervisor has taught me a variety of skills in relation to teamwork, responsibility, and organisation.

I am currently studying my final year of Visual Communication Design at The Queensland College of Art. I have also completed my Certificate II in Business Communication Technologies, giving me a business related edge within the design industry. I have also completed an internship at Liveworm Studio’s where I was briefed by clients, presented to clients and went through the process of pre-press for print for an invitation I designed for an gallery event at the Project Gallery, Queensland College of Art.

I love sewing, scrapbooking, baking, jewellery making, creating new things, trying random ideas and generally having fun with imagination, art, craft and design. On the other-hand, I am extremely organised, I love to problem solve and thrive within team situations.

I’m a big activist for recycling and believe that this should go hand in hand with design. Reusing and recreating by taking something old and making it new again is a subject I am passionate about, and a subject I think its very relevant in our current problematic world.


I have joined the Memfest community becasue i am interested in

Promoting a world that is self-sufficient, employs sustainable practices that ensures natural resources are preserved for future generations.
