Calling for help by visual culture: Room wanted!!

Those who have read and heard a bit about our project knows that we will try to solve a societal challenge by means of visual culture… A bit vague? Well, I’ll give an example by means of a videoclip. I came across a very funny, clever and creative example of how to solve a societal challenge, in this case the lack of housing in Amsterdam, by visual culture. This guy, Kasper, is trying to find a room in Amsterdam, but did not succeed so far. I believe the video is spreading all over social media at the moment and the fact that I am writing about it as well tells me that using visual culture to get your message across can work pretty well!

Another video that drew my attention is the video ‘Share your green piece’ by Greenpeace, that won the Dutch Greenbusters Award. When having a good look at the video it looks like it may have been filmed on a very low budget, however the video is nice to watch and the message is not less powerful.  Please have a look at the video below and see how you can ‘Share your green piece’.

We’re always interested to hear about any creative and innovative ideas to solve our problems within the food sector. Any thoughts? Don’t hesitate and contact us now!

Visual culture – putting thoughts into pictures

While I was thinking about a topic that would make this blog interesting for today, I followed my daily routine to check on blogs that I try to follow on a regular basis and came across fuckyouverymuch.

The blog is run by “Two friends trying to manage their relationship through this visual diary.” I have been following this blog for several years. The way that the two authors put their thoughts into one simple picture with a short caption amazes me. I like the visuals they choose and the context of the blog: it’s simple, entertaining and inspiring. You can find critical and political topics and everything else that could go on in a human head. If you have a minute and would like to gain some insight, you should check it out here. http://fuckyouverymuch.dk/

In the context of visual culture I would like to share another artist that I have been following through recent history. Walker Pachler was born in the US and raised in the Netherlands. Among his works you can find the diversity of visual culture with pictures, drawings and videos. His portfolio delivers an overview of his great talent. But see for yourself (click the picture for a link to his website)

I believe that choosing visual culture as a subsector for this project opened up many opportunities for us and I am looking forward to get deeper into the subject of creative industries, to discover local art and artists especially in North Brabant and then share our and my thoughts, ideas or discoveries with you.
