Kendal, United Kingdom (PressExposure) September 04, 2008 -- A_B_ Peace & Terror etc. by Peter Crnokrak, otherwise known as The Luxury of Protest, blends art, world politics and computational data to reveal the contribution each of the 192 member states of the United Nations has made towards peace and terror in the world. Using accurate figures obtained from researchers working in geopolitics, these limited edition prints, A_B_ Peace & Terror etc. is presented as a dual-sided poster, the âAâ side displays each countryâs bearing on peace and the âBâ side displays each countryâs bearing on terror. By overlaying the âAâ and âBâ sides, Crnokrak presents us with a visually arresting piece of artwork that allows a direct visual comparison of each countryâs contribution to world peace and terror. Widespread interest in the artworkâs initial production run has led to a 2nd edition, again this wall art is available exclusively from Design Supremo (http://www.designsupremo.com)
Using three concentric circles and varying line thickness, the image conveys detailed information regarding violence, the environment, individual well-being, human rights violations, weapon holding per capita and military expenditure per capita.
A_B_ Peace & Terror etc. Version 2 is a dual-sided silk-screen print on GFSmith Plasma Polycoat Glass Clear, 350 micron plastic. A_side printed verso graphite metallic black ink; B_side printed recto pearlescent white ink. It can be displayed either transparently, within sheets of protective glass, or with colored card inserted to create a background that suits the location.
