New Pepsi Logo

Okay, so I don't blog as often as I should, but with some down time on hand this break, I should be updating tons more. First thing's first, though: The new Pepsi logo. I encountered the new logo over Thanksgiving break when my brother slammed down a can right in front of me. "Well...?" My initial reaction was "w...t...f" Not a good or bad reaction, but more like a "since when!" reaction. It's minimal but becomes subtle and elegant the more you look at it. It didn't take me long to fall in love with new design at all. I must admit, though, that it makes me feel like I'm *really* in the future...and that kind of weirds me out.

Feeling guilty...

Tastespotting is back! I was almost feeling guilty and embarassed for opening this page in public; almost like looking at I had to close the tab and refocus my mind on writing a paper. But tastespotting does look more delicious now that it's not part of notcot anymore.

Politcally Provocative Money Prints

Dan Tague's - "Cash Rules Everything Around Me"

His statement on the project:

The appeal and power of money are the issues at the core of this series. In a capitalist society cash rules everything. Society teaches us that you can buy love, happiness, and status through possessions. You can even right wrongs by taking away a bit of someone’s happiness through fines and lawsuits. Politicians buy votes through claims of lowering taxes, in other words letting us hold on to a little more of status… upper, lower, upper-lower class. Income tax, sales tax, and property tax all fund the war on terror, war on drugs, war on poverty, war on morality, etcetera. In fact our consumer pursuit of happiness is the cause and solution for all of these wars.
So in order to convey the allure of cash I relied on the aesthetic qualities of the bills. Detailed decorative engravings, masterful portraits and architectural renderings, and elegant fonts create a decadent allure. I further the effect with folds and twists to abstract the imagery and create a collage of wonderful images.
Folding the bills has another purpose to create narrative. The folds are precise and calculated in order to convey messages amidst the appeal of the abstracted imagery. The messages are political in nature ranging from local issues directed at rebuilding New Orleans with phrases like Unite NOLA and Home is a Tent. The proceeds of this photograph go to UNITY of Greater New Orleans to help out with the homeless crisis in our city. Other messages relate issues of terror and war with State of Fear and Hunt for Oil. While others deal with religion, God is American, and politicians, Trust No One. Then there is the ultimate praise of money in a capitalist world as the The American Idol.
