Meme (pron. meem): A contagious information pattern that replicates by parasitically infecting human minds and altering their behavior, causing them to propagate the pattern. Individual slogans, catch-phrases, melodies, icons, inventions, and fashions are typical memes. An idea or information pattern is not a meme until it causes someone to replicate it, to repeat it to someone else. All transmitted knowledge is memetic.

Save The Bee
/

A collection of graphic devices to hopefully raise the problem of the demise of the bee.
/

Scientists claim radiation from handsets are to blame for mysterious 'colony collapse' of bees. They are putting forward the theory that radiation given off by mobile phones and other hi-tech gadgets is a possible answer to one of the more bizarre mysteries ever to happen in the natural world - the abrupt disappearance of the bees.

Your Turn Next

I did this very early in the morning of April 22nd 2007, Earth Day. It lasted for over a week before the bears head drooped forward due to the wind and wet weather, which made him look even more sorrowful.

Illustration sold to the Environment Agency for £20.

Most UK town's have a Queen Street and Great Harwood is no exception. This particular street is covered in dog crap, so I decided to wheatpaste this 6ft plot.

Some call it graffiti, I call it social responsibility and awareness through the arts. Social Marketing no less.

Forgive them...

Roadside Malarchy

On April 8th, 2009 there was a massive Police operation in the Lancashire town of Clitheroe. The Police had intelligence that suggested an Al - Qaeda cell was working in the town. On April 9th I posted these foamex boards at the gateway areas of the town.

I wonder what MI5 thought when they saw them? I've no doubt they had them translated and was puzzled to discover the modern Arabic translated to: "Father forgive them, for they know not what they do".

I wonder what the local Muslims thought?

Garden Malarchy
/

Recent evidence released is showing the North Pole ice is melting at the highest rate ever recorded. As a result, the Pole may be completely ice-free at the surface and composed of nothing but open water by September 07.
As reported in September of last year, the Northwest Passage was ice-free for the first time known to man.
So, I reckon by sticking garden spikes in people's lawns and front gardens, might just make some people think.

Your Country's Call. In 1915 the Parliamentary Recruiting Committee decided to boost recruitement into the armed forces by producing this poster.

The unknown graphic artists brief was obviously to paint an idealised, or in some cases accurate account of what could be lost to the enemy of Europe. The landscape could be Dorset or Devon.

The Dorsetshire Regiment.
6 November 1914. Landed in Fao, Persian Gulf, for campaign in Mesopotamia, as part of Indian Expeditionary Force 'D'.

The Devonshire Regiment on
2 March 1916 landed at Basra with the independent 41st Indian Brigade andthereafter remained in Mesopotamia for the rest of the war.

My subtle addition to this iconic poster hopefully adds a contempory aspect to a 100 year old problem.

OIL!

Earth Day 2010

The BP owned Deepwater Horizon rig sank on 22 April which coincided with the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day. US President Barack Obama has described the oil slick as a "potentially unprecedented" environmental disaster. This is an amended BP poster from the 1920s. To see the original click the image. Forgive me for not being patriotic.

The only CCTV in the village
/

The steady expansion of the "surveillance society" risks undermining fundamental freedoms including the right to privacy, according to a House of Lords report published in 2009.

Many surveillance practices are unknown to most people, the expansion in their use represents "one of the most significant changes in the life of the nation since the end of the second world war", the report says. The committee challenges whether CCTV cuts crime at all. Are we safer, more reassured, or is Britain really going to the wall?
