Call for submissions: Make an image representing capitalism!
AREA Chicago #8 asked readers to define capitalism, resulting in 183 diverse responses. Now they are continuing this exploration by inviting you to submit (in person, via mail or email) a visual depiction or representation of capitalism. Feel free to keep it broad and define what it is, or be specific and show how it effects you and your community.
These visual representations of capitalism will be collected throughout AREA's current exhibition and event series "Everbody's Got (more) Money Issues" taking place at Mess Hall in Chicago's Rogers Park neighborhood throughout the month of August.
The project intersects with recent public debate in Copenhagen about air pollution in the city. In collaboration with Senior Scientist Jørgen Brandt from The National Environmental Research Institute in Denmark a first prototype is developed for making an indicator that can be placed in the city and display local levels of pollution as well as pollution forecasts on individual streets. The project holds an open source script for displaying data from the Internet in a variety of forms.
