For our final project, Kali, Ena and I are planning on launching a campaign based mostly in posters around campus, but I would like a little feedback/ ideas from the class. So far, as a group we have decided to focus on creating a series of detoured images comprised of advertisements that objectify or misrepresent women, pointing out their flaws hopefully with a mixture of photoshop and humor. We are planning on possibly leaving a space for people to interact with the posters, potentially speech bubbles where people can insert their own thoughts physically onto the posters themselves, creating a forum-like space. Potentially, we would also like to link the posters with a hashtag, creating a virtual forum to compliment the physical forum. Thoughts? How do you think we could most efficiently promote our hashtag campaign besides creating posters?

    I liked that they put their manifesto on their website. It gave them a reason that made them seem less destructive and more purpose driven.

    If you make posters to put up around campus you may want to grab Alexa’s idea of adding the Scan Code for smart phones – look up free QR code generators for smart-phones – then you can link your posters to a social media site where people can join a conversation about the poster image/message.
