occupygeorge.com – Money Talk

Posted in design, ideas, inspiration, Media by aldorf on October 15, 2011

The Egyptian Revolution used Technology, The Occupy Movement is using creativity and celebrating resistance – and Germany? Germany is still throwing bricks and burning cars… I guess that’s how far we got in terms of evolution. Occupygeorge is a perfect example and this video here about the current civil outrage on WallStreet.

Money talks, but not loud enough for the 99%. By circulating dollar bills stamped with fact-based infographics, Occupy George informs the public of America’s daunting economic disparity one bill at a time. Because money knowledge is power.

MADE Project, Berlin

Posted in architecture, art, blog, ideas, Media by aldorf on April 10, 2010

Extraordinary things are MADE here.

MADE IS A DREAM.

IT STARTED IN THE MIND OF TADIROCK.

AS AN ARTIST, SHE NEEDED A SPACE TO WORK, EXHIBIT AND NETWORK. THIS NEED EVOLVED INTO THE IDEA OF CREATING A PLATFORM FOR ARTISTS FROM ALL KINDS OF FIELDS.

MADE IS A SPACE.

MADE IS A SPACE OFFERING CREATIVE MINDS THE FREEDOM TO EXCHANGE IDEAS AND WORK TOGETHER. CREATIVITY NOT ONLY NEEDS ROOM TO BREATHE – CREATIVITY LITERALLY NEEDS SPACE TO DEVELOP AND EXPRESS ITSELF. MADE IS A 430 M2 FLEXIBLE SPACE DESIGNED BY THE ARCHITECT ALEXIS DORNIER.

MADE IS A VISION.

IT’S A DYNAMIC FORUM WHERE CREATIVES FROM VARIOUS FIELDS CAN DEVELOP A VISION TOGETHER. MADE CHALLENGES ARTISTS TO STEP OUT OF THEIR COMFORT ZONE, DEVELOP SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY AND BRING IT TO LIFE, AND TO TRANSCEND THE LIMITS OF THEIR OWN MINDS.

MADE IS CREATIVE INSPIRATION.

IT ENCOURAGES US TO DO SOMETHING NEW AND SEE WHAT’S THERE ALREADY WITH NEW EYES. MADE INSPIRES US TO EMBRACE THE UNEXPECTED AND PUSH THE LIMITS. IT MEANS TAKING NEW ROADS, COMBINING THINGS IN SURPRISING WAYS, BRINGING THE UNIMAGINABLE TO LIFE.

MADE IS A GALLERY.

THE RESULTS OF UNEXPECTED ENCOUNTERS BETWEEN DIFFERENT FORMS OF ARTISTIC EXPRESSION WILL BE PRESENTED HERE REGULARLY. EACH PROJECT WILL BE PRESENTED TO THE PUBLIC WITH AN EXHIBITION. ADDITIONAL EVENTS WILL TAKE PLACE SPONTANEOUSLY IN INTERACTION WITH THE BERLIN VIBE.

MADE IS AN OPPORTUNITY.

MADE ASPIRES TO INITIATE AND FOSTER COLLABORATION AND COOPERATION IN DIFFERENT FORMS OF CREATIVE EXPRESSION – TO BE A SPACE WHERE VISIONS CAN BECOME REALITY.

MADE IS A PERSON.

TADIROCK IS THE PERSON AND THE CREATIVE MIND BEHIND MADE. AN ARTIST HERSELF, SHE WILL ACT AS THE HOST AND GUIDING SPIRIT OF MADE.
