Ola-Dele Kuku - 'Agenda Setting 2 / 7
‘ Agenda Setting’ is a conceptual design installation proposed as a reaction
to the frictions of social communication and the mass media,
vis-à-vis the notion of a unitary tendency of society and common
values.
The contemporary sociology of mass media communication reveals a
consistent presentation of agendas rather than reports which are
illustrated by selected interest in particularities, focus and
oversight.

This installation is a constructive composition using selected books in
various languages relating to the theme.

The contents of the open pages represent the windows of perception and
contradictions of knowledge, beliefs and general information. The
piece presents words and texts as pixels of a bigger image. The usual
interpretation of a picture comes in words and followed by a
reaction. In this case, only words and texts are presented without
images in order to instigate or permit an independent point of view.

In our contemporary society, postulated discrepancies between values
produce inappropriate amplification of deviance in reaction and
response (as a result of perception, interpretation and translation),
with special reference to the continuous global tendency of violence
as a behavioural response.
The conceptual artistic intervention deals with the reverse notion of
translations and interpretations, where images are presented in
words.
Furthermore, the design aspects of the project looks into alternative definitions
of an image through the creation of an interactive archive of
information.

The size and dimension of the composition can be adapted to the available
wall space. The proposed dimensions are +/- 240 cm / 420 cm.
