Portraits Of Obama: Media, Fidelity, and the 44th President

Using Obama as a prism, this essay examines the culture of American mass media, examining the fidelity of news content amongst the ever-growing, ever-fragmenting, modern media landscape. It investigates the audience’s active engagement in the construction of their relationship to reality, the flawed nature of newsmakers and their perceptions of the world, and offers an alternative narrative approach to the construction of the self.

PROJECT SUMMARY :

Weeksville Heritage Center is a shining example of both a cultural and community organization. Its purpose is to create a bridge between its surrounding neighborhood in Central Brooklyn to the legacy of Weeksville, a historic African-American community from the first quarter of the 20th century.

From 2007-2012, my design studio Dimitrious II worked with Weeksville as branding and marketing consultants to increase awareness and traffic to their physical and online sites.
