About Visions of Occupy
This project seeks to pair two pillars of the Occupy movement: the beliefs we have which inspire us to occupy and the occupations themselves.
Using data collected this winter by the Occupy Research General Survey (administered by OccupyResearch), we take the answer to question 42—”In just a few words, what are you trying to achieve with your participation in the Occupy movement”—and pair it with a Flickr photo tagged with the camp name that the same respondent mentions. This means that while the photo displayed and quote may be completely unrelated (both in source and in specific content), viewers are presented with locational context and imagery.
Please feel free to share your answer to question 42 or your photos.
For more information, please see Occupy Research.
Note: Neither photos nor quotes are curated. They are pulled randomly from Flickr and survey results, respectively.
