Eckerson Week 9: Imperio Yanqui Go Home…

March 3, 2014 by amandae@uoregon.edu   

This short video animation was made by a collective in Venezuela that operates out of barrios where there is no running water.  It is a piece for a pirate radio station, whose antenna literally sits on a cinderblock rooftop, but the quality is akin to MtV.  It shows an impressive use of CS6 integration, from the movement to the winking eye, and also how a bit of fancy video art can add new dimensions to an old speech.  I’m continually amazing by the professional quality work that comes out of the people’s movements of Venezuela, and the guidance they provide for how the tools of the 21st century can be used to break down traditional barriers to power.
