Hi All,

In keeping with Ryan's earlier post re: Journal of Aesthetics & Protest

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
... you are invited to create posters through Andy Deck's Imprimatur
http://turbulence.org/Works/imprimatur/

All posters created during February, March and April will be displayed 
at HTTP Gallery and the surrounding public spaces for the next 
exhibition, 'Open Vice Virtue: the online art context'.
Also photographs of posters displayed in public locations will be 
documented on the HTTP website. So please download, print out and paste 
up archived posters in your own localities - send your photos to 
info at http.uk.net

"Imprimatur consists of an online 'groupware' for poster illustration 
and layout accessible through a computer workstation installed in the 
gallery space. Visitors can use the software to create their own poster 
in collaboration with their online counterparts. This piece provides a 
framework for visitors/participants to launch a personal poster 
campaign based on their own social and political concerns. This DIY 
approach revives the tradition of poster-making as a medium of mass 
communication and persuasion developed during the 20th century. The 
posters will by displayed as part of the exhibition and will circulate 
freely beyond the gallery walls, appearing in surrounding streets, 
schools, libraries, kitchens and bedrooms."  http://www.http.uk.net
