Design Walk 2010: Analog VS digital

This is a mosaic illustration made in collaboration with my friends at the Indyvisual Design Collective. These good fellas asked me to play with them on the subject "analog VS digital". They have been given this subject by Double Decker, curators of the Design Walk 2010.
The idea of Petros Voulgaris, Costas Vassilakis, Stavros Georgakopoulos, Christos Kourtoglou and Giorgos Chandrinos was to create a digital mosaic and then they would reconstruct it in an analog mode.
We chose to use the eyes from the poster of the Mathieu Kassovitz's "La Heine" movie. My friends are thinking that the film is not only a great classic but it's also expressing a period that our country is also living lately.
To provide a revolutionary response to this social mess we chose to use some leftist or military clichés like the star or the thunder but enrich them with floppies and scissors that are symbols of digital and analog creativity. The Black-Red-Yellow colors are not used only because we wanted to incorporate another cliché. These are the actual colors of the Indyvisuals' working space. (I think this guys are supporting a yellow soccer team or something... :-))
