Throughout our site we’ve tried to tie together the ideas of violence in advertising and violence in reality.
All of our code names are associated with an individual who’s reputation is associated with violence against women or who was actually convicted of extreme cases of assault, abuse, or murder.
Violence is so often used in the media that we forget about the realistic effects of those actions.
Myke Tisson, Oh.Jay.Sympson, Kriis.Bruan, and Ted.Bundee want to remind you…
VIOLENCE ISN’T SEXY!
Myke.Tisson aka Mislav Dubicanac
I am presently in my final semester as an undergraduate student. My program of studies is in the field of Physical Geography. The Advertising in Society class with Professor Strangelove is among my elective choices and seems quite unique.
I’m in my fourth year at the University of Ottawa, working towards an Honours BA with Specialization in Communication (Co-op) degree. Throughout my time at the University I’ve focused on the study of media – its creation, use, and effects on society. I’m also particularly interested in the use of technology within power relations; stemming from traditional authoritarian relations, but particularly the power of the masses found in prosumer creations.
Kriis.Braun aka Andrea Stupak
I am currently in my final semeter at the University of Ottawa studying Health Sciences. After I graduate, my plan is to attend teachers college and become a high school Physical Education teacher. I have done a lot of travelling in my days which has taken me all around the world. I have been to Mexico, Cuba, Bahamas, Florida, and Jamacia. In the future I wish to travel across Canada.
Ted.Bundee aka Justin Ivaskiv
I am completing my final classes at University of Ottawa to graduate with my BA. After this degree I plan on participating in a Certificate Program concentrating on Business Administration or Finance. Although I don’t have an academic background in communications, I have worked for several marketing departments for medium and large size corporations worldwide. I plan to work abroad after I finish school. For fun I like to take long walks on the beach, and sip champagne in hot tubs.
