The Occupy Illuminator is Alive and Well

With all eyes on New York City as world leaders met at the UN, protesters lit up the exterior wall of Bobst at NYU with images and messages that could not be ignored.more

Projectors in the Political Sphere

Everything about this video touched my inner activist. It gives viewers a sort of insider's look at the preparations and excitement preceding the series of projections seen last fall on the Verizon building in New York at the height of the Occupy protests. It made me ponder even more deeply about the future of the projected image. Will guerrilla photon bombing or projection bombing be regulated if deemed subversive? Will a projected hologram become a psychological weapon on the battlefield like a high tech Tokyo Rose? Will we see the use of projected images to control and suppress as much as to awake and incite? This requires further investigation. Give me some time.

Occupy Everywhere with a Projector

I had a feeling I'd soon find a video of a projector used effectively as a tool in the Occupy Wall Street protests. Projectors provide bold, loud messaging flexibility and likely do not violate any laws currently on the books in the US. However, Ukraine's Kyiv Post reports that charges were recently leveled against individuals projecting the slogan"Freedom to Yulia" in central Kyiv during a New Year's show at Independence Square. While no arrests were made, the door to the projection room across the square was kicked in and projection technology unplugged. Have we entered the era of the subversive projector?
