I'm upset. I've watched this oil volcano catastrophe unfold and felt helpless and frustrated. Really, even those words can't express the sorrow and horror I have felt. What to do? I made a decision that this summer my blog will focus on art that responds to social and political issues. There is nothing new in this form of artistic expression but it has a power that can help turn thinking into action. I don't think we can call it post-postmodern anymore - where are we in the art timeline now? I'll be researching this over the summer to see what I can find out. For those of you checking my blog, I welcome your input.
To start, I ran across this competition of Greenpeace UK to rebrand BP's logo. Check out the responses. As I post this there is still a day left in the competition if you want to enter your design. Entry info here.
