As New York marks the 11th year since the September 11 attacks on our city, a sort of solemn sadness was evident on the subways and on the streets this morning, or maybe we’re just projecting our own sadness and feelings of loss.  In those days afterward it felt like we had put down our differences and unified in our sorrow and our determination.  We were changed by those events, and are still learning from them.

Now in 2012, news organizations are estimating that 6 billion dollars will be spent during this presidential campaign. “17 angry old white men will wake up and realize they’ve just bought the country,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid this summer. He was referring to our new system that for the first time enables anyone from anywhere to contribute as much as they want to a campaign and do it secretly. Free speech sounds pretty expensive, and we don’t even know who is speaking.

PALEIKE [Paleak kalean biltzen ditugu.]

Paleak kalean biltzen ditugu.
Desegin, iltzeak kendu, materiala sailkatu, garbitu, lixatu eta egurra prest uzten dugu lanerako.

Zertarako da altzaria? Norentzat?
Garrantzia handiena erabilerak du, erosoa eta mugierraza izateak, ukimenak… gorputzera ondo egokitzeak.

Gustokoak ditugun egurrak hartu eta kolore eta tamainak nahasten ditugu, forma desberdinak asmatuz.

Diseinua egiterakoan, paletaren itxura kontutan hartzen dugu: orain beste zerbait dira baina iragana beren memorian gordeta dute.

Bukaeran forma guztiak leundu eta borobiltzen ditugu ukitzerakoan atseginak izan daitezen.

Orain zerbait organikoa dira.
Industriatik etxera egin dute bidaia.
Makinatik, gorputzera.

— Article-27

Article 27 is a team of people that believe human rights issues are often best told through creative means. We research and write on things such as music, film, design, technology, new media and other platforms that shed light on human rights issues in a unique way.

We want Article 27 to be a hub of inspiration for human rights activists, artists, technology enthusiasts, and anyone who believes in the power of creativity.

Our name is inspired by Article 27 from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Article 27:
1. Everyone has the right freely to participate in the cultural life of the community, to enjoy the arts and to share in scientific advancement and its benefits.

2. Everyone has the right to the protection of the moral and material interests resulting from any scientific, literary or artistic production of which he is the author.
