Hi. The issue I am developing is social restoration. I am specifically
concentrating on the status of public space in contemporary society. An
artist who addresses this issue is Krzysztof Wodiczko (pronounced Christof
Wo...well that part is easy enough). Wodiczko is best known for his huge
full-color images that are projected on the buildings of cities
internationally. The images portray concerns ranging from social
(homelessness), to enviornmental (pollution), to political (war). Although
the images are striking they are only one aspect of the projections. Equally
as important are the buildings themselves which are monuments for the public
and are often the physical manifestations of the patriarchal foundations of
modern societies.

Please respond if this is a topic you are interested in discussing. Other
artists such as Jenny Holzer would fit in this category. re: social
conditioning.
Suggestions? Comments? Recipees? Please reply

Thanks Andrea @ o.s.u.
