No more ignorance. Lets make artwork that useful, not just aesthetic. Artwork that concern, not just cool.
Because our corn flakes came from child labour in Mali. Because our sport shoes came from underpaid worker in Vietnam. Because our cloth come from sweatshop labour in India. Because our sketchbook came from illegal logging in Indonesia. Because our softdrink came from tortured worker in Colombia. Because our jewerly came from conflict area in Ivory Coast. Because our vehicles consume gas faster than the world can produce. Because our fragrance has created a big hole in ozone layer. Because our hypermart were built by the death of small local merchant.
Maybe we cannot go to Sudan to stop the civil war. Maybe we cannot go to Papua to stop the hazardous waste of the mining company. Maybe we cannot go to Guyana to stop the poverty rate. But surely, with our wacom tablet, with our camera, with our mouse, we can make something useful for them. We can make art that against inhumanity, against injustice, against greed economy systems.
If we can make a cool typo, why dont we make a good typo for anti-war slogan. If we can create a stunning complex giga-robot vector, why dont we create an artwork about exploited worker at industrious zone. If we can trace somebodies face to make a highly-detail level of vexel, why dont we vexelize Nelson Mandela. If we can draw a cute chibi-manga, why dont we make a doujin-strips about caring the orphans. If we can make artistic photography, why dont we make one or two photographs about poverty. If we good on photo editing, why dont we make an artwork that describing the sorrow of those who live in the land of tears. If we can write a prose, why not making poem against rascism.
No more ignorance. We all live together in this small world. Lets make the difference. Make art that useful, not just aesthetic. Art that concern, not just cool.
