Pictogram détournement

Untitled
Untitled, originally uploaded by kuspe.

 

These are several images of a larger project by artist Kuspe, from São Paulo, Brazil, to use stickers as an engagement, perhaps even as a détournement, with all kinds of pictograms found around cities. These images subvert official pictograms of several signs and mash them with stickers to create new expressions, such as the iconic Devil and Baphomet-like figures shown here, which I thought rather interesting and amusing.

The Hermetic Library visual pool is a visual scavenger hunt for images of a living Western Esoteric Tradition. Images of your ritual or ritual space, images of sigils or tools, showing off your own library or special volume from the restricted stacks, sacred spaces and places, esoteric artefacts and installations, inspired paintings and people — these and much more are part of the culture and practice of magick. If you would like to submit your work for consideration as part of the visual pool, head over to the Hermetic Library visual pool or contact the librarian.
