AntiWar404: Movement not found?

Since the start of the World Wide Web thousands of anti-war and pro-peace projects have already come and gone. Now presents a first-ever collection of its kind documenting the traces of anti-war movements that have disappeared among the sponsored links, spams, and twittering machines of today’s infoverse.

Contemporary search engines have a tendency to make dead websites disappear quietly. AntiWar404 counteracts some of the resulting amnesia. It offers a concise record of the peace movement forgotten by Google, resurrecting pages and pages of war resistance that you won’t find in your search engine results. Peace documents re-found!

The Surge Cycle

Surge Cycle

Surge Cycle is the second in a series begun in 2002 by artist Andy Deck. The first installment, Hypno Techno, evoked the powerlessness of the public to dissuade the U.S. government from embarking on an era of preemptive invasions. Surge Cycle takes aim at the dubious claims of progress being made by those who advance invasion and military occupation as solutions for evil. In both cases the gestures of the animated figures suggest a frantic miscommunication – warnings and messages going unheeded.

Decoder Bling
Digitial decoder bling by Andy Deck

A free interpretation of privatized data streams. Digital encryption and encoding mired in secrecy and exclusivity. A premonition of future histories lost in translation. Decode the present and future illegibility of state-of-the-art media.

Wildlife Offline

Wildlife Offline

Members of a more than a few species are beginning to be outnumbered by cute caricatures on the Internet. This collection of illustrations depicting some of the world’s most endangered species demonstrates this trend.

Artcontext 2008 Calendar


Hapless flowers, windmills, trees, and small animals try to organize some type of response to climate change as a duper-hero clan of energy industry titans use their powers in the media and military to insure the supression of dissent and the continuation of their way of war. Lucha Neo-libre is Panel Junction #2 in calendar form, 12 pages of comic art influenced by user contributions through the website.
