    1. 1. Art.with.a.Message. Social Activism in Mixed Media Projects
    2. 2. What is Art with a Message?Activist art is intended for a wider audience, and sets out to create awareness for those who have been marginalized and disenfranchised (I.E. The people of Nicaragua) so they can be seen and given a voice.Activist art incorporates the use of public space to address socio- political issues and to encourage community and public participation as a means of bringing about social change.It aims to change society by opening up the dialogue, raising consciousness, and empowering individuals and communities to create positive change .
    3. 3. Watch the video about who ODFL is
    4. 4. For this project… • -You will be creating a work of art that sends a message to your viewer • -Your point of view may be extremely obvious OR it may be obscured and be able to be read multiple ways • -The specific proposal for your project should be something you feel strongly about or connected to • -You may choose to use words/text to better help get your point across but text is not required.

    6. 6. Shepard Fairey• Born in 1970 (42 years old, probably the youngest artist we will study)• He went to RISD (Rhode Island School of Design)• While at RISD Fairey made his infamous “Andre the Giant has a Posse” and “Liberated” posters
    7. 7. Phenomenology• The Obey campaign can be explained as an experiment in Phenomenology.• The first aim of Phenomenology is to reawaken a sense of wonder about one‟s environment.• The Obey campaign attempts to stimulate curiosity and bring people to question both the campaign and their relationship with their surroundings.• Because people are not used to seeing advertisements or propaganda for which the motive isn‟t obvious, seeing Obey‟s propaganda on the street provokes thought or frustration. It reawakens the viewer‟s perception and attention to detail.• The medium is the message- www.obeygiant.com
    8. 8. Getting the Message OutFairey‟s idea of phenomenology was carried out through posting up images and posters all around the worldSome of the images were vague in meaning and some had very clear and bold messages
