Quote from my project description
I made Letter from Obama because of all the news recently. With the government shutdown, the NSA hackings, Snowden, and more, I wanted to make a political statement even though I do not like politics. I felt this was more like an NSA leak plus a Thanks Obama type statement with how this piece worked out. I decided that I would have to create some sort of conspiracy theory type of letter. What would have worked better is if I could have used a real Obama letter and edited it. Instead, I made this myself.
This letter provides a representation to all Americans by playing off conspiracy theories and recent political events. While my letter isn’t real nor make sense, it gives the viewer an insight to everything that has been happening in the news recently. It is essentially a culmination of all the news events and makes you think. While the actual text is random works and Lorem Lipsum, the viewer can easily get the point across when seeing this piece, you automatically recognize the White House symbol, Barack Obama’s signature, and the declassified information. The viewer then gets a scary thought as the letter is intended to be propaganda from Obama himself. I feel like someone who views this would have an extreme opinion whether they agree or disagree depending on their political stance. This extreme emotion is what I intended on achieving.
Note: This does not represent my political views.
