If you go into a store that sells magazines you can begin to understand the culture you live in. The effort to produce a magazine is only made if an audience is willing to buy it. Images contained within those pages come at you so fast it is hard to stop and contemplate what it all means. On the opposite end of the written propaganda spectrum, lies the encyclopedia. Images contained within those dense tomes flow to you constantly, letting their flawed and dated information soak in with class and dignity. Both elements could possibly be located in a young lawyer’s office ante-room, but won’t be found together at a convenience store. Being seemingly opposites, the abrupt combination in a brief, yet repeated gesture of these materials has been constantly amusing to us as they come together.

The Button Project was begun by gathering the two media. Whole pictures were then chopped, spliced, and mounted into new compositions forcing the viewer to consider the imagery and iconography in different ways. These new images were then turned into buttons that can be advertised by anyone. By limiting the presentation to three inch buttons, the combinations come into greater focus and can be spread to a large audience, although not quite as large as in their initial debut. A contemporary model selling perfume is placed next to a model from days gone by exposing the changing definitions of beauty. Black and white figures view at you through the weave of a bright fabric. The ocean gives breath to an elephant. Anything can be possible with the pictures of the world that surrounds us. So, step into our combined imagination and step out with a memento.

  1. Loan Opportunity Offered By Mr, Benjamin That Save My Family From Financial Bondage {lfdsloans@lemeridianfds.com}

    Hello Everyone, I am Putri Adiratnaa single mom from Jakarta, I would like to share this great testimony on how I got a loan from Mr, Benjamin, when we were driven out of our home when I couldn't pay my bills anymore, After being scammed by various companies online and denied a loan from my bank and some other credit union I visited. My children were taken by the foster care, I was all alone in the street. The day i shamefully walked into an old school mate who introduced me to Daisy Maureen. At first I told her that I am not ready to take any risk of requesting a loan online anymore, but she assured me that I will receive my loan from them. On a second thought, due to my homelessness I had to take a trial and applied for the loan, luckily for me I received a loan of $80,000.00 from Mr, Benjamin. I'm happy I took the risk and applied for the loan. My kids have been given back to me and now I own a home and a business of my own. All thanks and gratitude goes to Le_Meridian Funding Service and for the help of Mr, Benjamin for giving me a meaning to life when i had lost all hope.
