I’ve built a drawing machine that produces posters that express why feminism is still relevant. The posters contain news headlines, things people have said to me or in my presence and most importantly, things that piss me off. I’m aiming for 300 posters and they can’t all be my voice.
If you have things, stories, experiences or rants you’d like to be added to the poster wall share them with me. Complain to me about things that piss you off/ the inequalities and injustices you experience. There is no topic that won’t be included. The posters are A2 sized so between 1 and 100 words max.
A digital copy of each poster is also in a PDF book alongside appropriate citations or an optional expanded version of the text. It’s your call if you’d like to remain anonymous, cite a website or included a social media handle etc.
They are to be displayed as a giant poster wall in the Dunedin School of Art gallery in September 2017 as part of my Master of Fine Arts degree. Alongside the posters are 300 small ‘Bertha’ sculptures, two huge “Bertha” figures and a series of larger drawings also drawn with a drawing machine. “Bertha” is based on a mannequin I made a few years ago.
Stories (or questions) can be directed to the contact form on this website or Facebook
Berthas and posters (aka my artwork) are all over Instagram, Tumblr and Facebook
Also, the drawing machine is entirely open source, instructions are here and here.
