How do I Image Macro IRL?

Postby Natalya » Mon May 21, 2012 1:52 am

Image Macros are like a true product of the internet. So what I thought I'd do was I'd go to Kinko's and make some HUEG copies of some clever and anti-establishment and anti-police-state image macros that have both logic and comedy in them and paste them around town. I want to do this because if the giant media bullshitters get to put up huge billboards and throttle us mercilessly with advertisements and pro-establishment propaganda and false questions, then we ought to be able to do the same shit back.

Prime targets to be image macro'd are as follows:

- Campaign posters
- Advertising signs that are attached to gas station pumps
- Advertisements in general such as billboards
- Blank walls that a lot of people will see
- Property of banks, or signs for banks

I'm sick of how the average citizen only hears the false stories of our corporate overlords when really they need to hear from other real every-day people who don't make a shit ton of money off of disinformation. My only thing is I don't know how to fasten huge posters to their targets. Maybe spray-on glue?

Examples of pictures I might use are posted below. I obviously accept submissions of even better shit. This needs to be turned into an art form.

I think I might just go around and post these pictures around town. This is a beautiful idea, no idea why I didn't think of it earlier.

For guerrilla postering I understand the tool of choice is still rollers and paste. But it might be better to Banksy it and just cook up some tailor-made spraypaint stencils instead.

Although its messy, time-consuming, and I hate the stuff, if you can make super glue work it would be a good choice. Especially if you coat the entire backside of the poster with it, seeing as how it will both both messy and nearly impossible to fully remove.

I guess paste washes off easy because its water based.
Spray glue is super easy and fast, will leave glue behind.
Duct tape is a bit slower and leaves glue behind the longer it stays up.

If you get caught you might be liable for damages, depending on what you put it on like Bonn-o-Tron.

don't get caught on a video security cam.

As big as you want them to be: Meet the Rasterbator.

It sounds a lot dirtier than it is, but basically you just select an image and it prints it out on lots of 8x11 papers which you just paste together, and it uses dots of different sizes to save on ink. From far away, you can tell what they are, and the parameters let you print images up to something like 56 feet long.
