A Feast For Untired Eyes

I keep wanting to click on more and more pages of Flavorwire, the blog by Flavorpill, “a network of culturally connected people.”

Because the site points to a multitude of visual oddities and things that make one wonder. Like “Masks for the Modern Tribe” by artist Jud Wimhurst.

The contemporary masks he envisions are adorned with familiar iconography from companies such as McDonald’s and Chanel. His culture jamming art dares to question the practice of defining individuals in terms of their purchases.

For a bit more Flavorwire in your media diet, see Awesome Infographic: Six Degrees of Inspiration, Voltaire to Moby and Propaganda Posters for Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am now head of brand strategy and creative direction at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
