I found the Chris Burden ads from Wednesday’s class to be a fascinating use of subversive media. By creating advertisements that are downright odd and uncomfortable to watch, he is able to disrupt a viewer’s relationship with the media they are absorbing, and make them think twice about what they may be watching. It made me think of how subversive advertising like Chris’ could be used today as part of the BLM movement. I tried to do a Google search and see if such a thing has already been done, but I couldn’t find anything. If anyone has seen anything like that, please let me know – I feel like it could be an incredibly effective tool that could be used not only in traditional media (such as television advertising) but also as a way to disrupt the monotony of Facebook/Twitter newsfeeds and make people look twice at the media they are engaging with.
