Einstien’s blood was tested after his death. The autopsy showed traces of LSD as well as Dimethyl-triptimene (DMT)
In 1955, Albert Einstein died from his heart exploding ‘burst aortic aneurysm’ which could have easily been caused by years of cocaine use in conjunction with his age at that time as cocaine users are found to have more than four times the risk of coronary artery aneurysms than non cocaine users as per the Journal of the American Heart Association.
Drugs, legal or illegal, are used by millions of people around the world to change consciousness, celebrate, inspire creativity, relieve boredom, enhance sex and to have fun. Using psychoactive substances is a normative experience in every society from the caffeine buzz of a fresh cup of coffee or tea, to the powerful, pain relieving and calming properties of smoking opium, to the incredible rush of energy and focus of methamphetamine, to a gin martini to chill out. Drug experiences enrich our lives, help us get closer to people, work/study, express emotions and relax.
We have the right to put whatever substances we want into our bodies absent harm to others. The majority of people who use drugs do so safely without hurting anyone. Everyday millions of people have great, nonharmful drug experiences. Truth is noone is talking candidly about the benefits and the positive effects of drugs. That is what propels people to take drugs in the first place.
This manifesto aims to teach the world to understand design therefore what is seen as ‘un-functional’ design in today’s society will become logical. It is all about being creative and being different, not conforming to normality where rules and regulations shape everything.
All design types wheather permanent or short-lived have a general strategy behind them. There should be a way for designers to create work for clients without comprising their morals in terms of social culture.
Creative individuals generally adhere to specific rules and boundaries, predominantly to allow for clear function of the designed work. E.g. packaging clearly states the name of the product and what it does etc. I believe that these boundaries mean that designers cannot be creative to their fullest ability.
Some could argue that having the rules and restrictions makes the designer more creative and therefore the work has a well thought out aesthetic with an underlying meaning. However I feel that the message behind design does not have to fully reflect the message of project, although must have some connection. It could also be said that design needs to be functional in order for the audience to understand it. E.g. the audience need to understand what is in the packaging of a product in order for them to want to buy it.
The reality of this manifesto is that people in society lead busy lives and most rules within design help create an aesthetic that makes it quick and simple for the user. For example a billboard campaign could have its message in big bold letters making it easy for the audience to understand quickly. I feel that if these types of rules were broken it would make the audience ignore the work as it is too complicated to understand. People do not have the time to understand design however the manifesto could be gradual.
Fonts have many different attributes and choosing the correct font for specific work is extremely important. There are many factors to take into consideration. A really good example of this is in advertisement.
Below I have found a website which depicts my theory.
A manifesto an idea to be built upon, intended for a large audience is written in clear, plain language so that everyone can understand it. The document can be long or short, and many manifestos offer a shorter manifesto for large distribution for the interest of the public.
It is hoped that after reading a manifesto, the audience will seek out more information about the particular topic, creating a growing awareness of and support for a movement. In addition, the manifesto can be used as a starting point for public discussion, as some readers will undoubtedly critique it while others defend it.
Manifesto Idea, I want to explore why certain drugs are illegal and the impact it has on the society we live in. I have researched this topic and decided it is what i would like to compile my project on.
People, who use drugs, including alcohol, do so because they like what the drugs do to their brains. All drugs of abuse, from alcohol to nicotine to heroin, cause a series of temporary changes in the brain that produce the “high.”
One of these changes is the rise in available levels of certain neurotransmitters associated with feelings of pleasure. Key among these is dopamine, a naturally occurring neurotransmitter that some scientists now think is implicated in most of the basic human experiences of pleasure.
The pleasure of a kiss, a bowl of favourite ice cream, and a compliment may all be related to a rise in dopamine levels in the normal person’s brain. Drugs of abuse also boost dopamine levels. When a person takes a hit of crack cocaine — or a drag on a cigarette — the drugs cause a spike in dopamine levels in the brain, and a rush of euphoria, or pleasure. While it’s not the only chemical involved in drug abuse, experts have come to believe that dopamine is the crucial one.
This has made me question why they are some drugs are illegal, alcohol is an addictive drug of abuse however in the eyes of the law does not provoke enough of an abuse to have been made illegal, this notion really makes me question what factors the government use to determine the substantial impact, it was because of this question where my manifesto idea first started to grow.
This is a video I came across on whilst researching typography after affects videos for some research and inspiration for my project. The idea behind the project is very simple, text whilst the words are spoken, the video is really fast paced which is what drew my attention in on the video.
Using a very simple font gave the overall video a real contemporary style, this was something which during tutorials I will definitely take into consideration whilst creating my manifesto. Very simple but quite productive in its approach to engage the audiences interest and prevail its message. It shows how much a of a difference using the correct typeface and font for your work makes in the final production process.
