New Documentary: The Illusionists » Sociological Images

Writer and director Elena Rossini has released the first four minutes of The Illusionists.  I’m really excited to see the rest.  The documentary is a critique of a high standard of beauty but, unlike some that focus exclusively on the impacts of Western women, Rossini’s film looks as though it will do a great job of illustrating how Western capitalist impulses are increasingly bringing men, children, and the entire world into their destructive fold.

John Pilger: Obama’s coup in Ukraine has ignited a civil war and lured Putin into a trap – Stop the War Coalition

“There is no equivalent to Strangelove today because popular culture is directed almost entirely at our interior lives, as if identity is the moral zeitgeist and true satire is redundant, yet the dangers are the same”

Mark Aldiss‘s insight:

"…The nuclear clock has remained at five minutes to midnight; the same false flags are hoisted above the same targets by the same "invisible government", asEdward Bernays, the inventor of public relations, described modern propaganda."

Culture Promotion Office – Project Smile


See on Scoop.itprojectbrainsaver

WORLD SMILE ARCHIVEMarek Wysoczyñski, an initiator of this very unique project has asked us to prepare an identity for his one in a kind collection of ‘smiles & autographs’. He believes that this simple act can have a major positive impact on our everyday life. His enthusiasm seems to be shared by many celebrities such as: Pedro Almodovar, Michael Jackson, Liza Minelli, Andrzej Wajda and Lech Wa⊃3;êsa who supported this cause by dedicating their ‘smiles & autographs’. 

Our major goal was to show the essence of Marek’s initiative in the simpliest possible way. We hoped to find a solution that would show the whole idea behind that simple emotion in a single emblem, however we knew that drawing nothing but a smile was not an option even if the whole project seems to be strictly based on it. Although it’s not apparent at first, the concept of a helping hand follows, unravelling Marek’s true intentions – behind a simple muscle contraction lies a deeper meaning, a desire to help one another, a desire to lend a helping hand. 

We combined these two ideas into one – a helping hand, carrying and passing the smile on. Aforementioned result served as a basis to create a minimalist and simple emblem which allows others to easily comprehend the whole concept without any unnecessary and misleading elements. Additionally, logo composition was prepared in a way allowing one to isolate a sign with a ‘smile word’ from the whole logo, which stands alone as a simplified logo version. However, the emblem alone is concise enough to be used without typography.
