Сергей Козлов – “Сказки о Ёжике и Медвежонке”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on November 30, 2009 by Linata

“Зимняя сказка”

— Что ты здесь делаешь? — спросил Медвежонок.

— Жду, когда ты выздоровеешь, — ответил Ёжик.

— Долго?

— Всю зиму. Я, как узнал, что ты объелся снегом — сразу перетащил все свои припасы к тебе…

— И всю зиму ты сидел возле меня на табуретке?

— Да, я поил тебя еловым отваром и прикладывал к животу сушёную травку…

— Не помню, — сказал Медвежонок.

— Еще бы! — вздохнул Ёжик. — Ты всю зиму говорил, что ты — снежинка. Я так боялся, что ты растаешь к весне…

Plastic – fantastique

i was kinda of impressed by the new video of Lady Gaga (bad romance)..i watched it by accident and realised that i know absolutely nothing about her.. i did not like her but i never questioned why…with the help of youtube i decided to observe what she’s doing and how she’s doing it… and! found out that she’s a very clever girl, in deed.  she is not fabricated by someone else, she is fabricated by herself.  that IS modern art/ culture.  our society is obsessed with fame.  artists can be extremely rich and this is a rather new phenomena…

in the 21 century everyone is so obsessed with being ‘special’, and this mass obsession makes ‘being special’ very unspecial… but whether you like this notion or not, it does not matter.. it IS happening… fame obsession became an essential part of our life…twittering, for example, is just one manifestation of it…. these days a person is rarely a person, but a brand…those who do not understand this belong to yesterday, pretty much…. and those who understand are  ‘in the game’…they develop together with time…or ahead of time… it’s all about marketing, isn’t it? unless u want to live in the mountains, grow your own vegetables..well, no… by doing so you’d attract attention and would become some sort of brand anyway…nobody really knows what’s real and what’ not..loads of content are being fabricated every day…interestingly, you can’t even measure how much..

i guess, we’ve had an industrial revolution, and now we are having a plastic revolution…

Millennium

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on November 19, 2009 by Linata

It’s nearly 10 years after millennium…where were you during millenium’s new year?.. were you expecting the world to end or did you expect life to become more exciting?

10 years..for some reason it is easier to think of things were didn’t have 10 years ago..like facebook, and ‘googling’, and maps on our mobiles..and oh…mobiles! not everyone had mobiles 10 years ago!

And what else?

What else we didn’t have before the millennium?

Did we have something we don’t have now? Are some things totally out of date? Like pagers.. )

Please share..this could turn into an interesting experiment!

Share here or on facebook..I then promise to organise all info in one interesting piece of design…so feel free to share images too…like your hair do back then.. ) post anything u like/ dislike about these 10 years…

I hope something interesting will come out of this… even if u do not wish posting anything enjoy contemplating about this!

Без юмора о юморе

Победить, добиться, быть лучше всех…прибежать первее, прыгнуть выше, откусить больше..бежать марафон жизни, задыхаясь и потея…а в современном мире ещё неменее важно делать вид, что не потея..потому приходится ‘n’-ную сумму откусанного тратить на фишки, которые помогают создать иллюзию, будто ты – не участник триатлона (обычно включающего работу, дом, и, так называемое, свободное время)..

Дух конкуренции прививается нам с детства..какой ребёнок не хочет, что б им гордились мама и папа?..нужно же как-то любовь зарабатовать..потому важно быть самым-самым!

Эх, если б родители только знали..до финиша добраться мы и так все успеем..а вот победителем станет тот, кто в процессе сумеет смешить.. и смеяться с другими…

Смех продлевает жизнь..и делает её светлее!

Illustrations for Chomsky’s book

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on November 16, 2009 by Linata

I had to quickly produce these  illustrations for Chomsky’s book “Media Control, The Spectacular Achievements of Propaganda”. Each image represents a particular quote (in relation to overall content, of course).
