Of Occupy Wall Street, Art and Design

The top news for the past cou­ple of days has been Steve Jobs’ pass­ing away, and the #Occu­py­Wall­Street move­ment. The move­ment started Sep­tem­ber 17th and is still going on. There’s been cov­er­age about it but one can tell that its not the full-coverage that we are all receiv­ing. Though, that is a story for another time and place.

Mean­while, from all of the recent devel­op­ments of it, there has been a surge of pas­sion­ate story-telling be it in a form of a tweet, an inter­view,1 or a writ­ten, poetic “offi­cial state­ment” which was recently read out by Keith Olber­mann.2

Another prod­uct of this, I must say, has been the print-design work that has been made avail­able to the pub­lic by Adbusters. The one that stands out the most to me is the visual-art piece with the dancer on the “Charg­ing Bull”.
