Flash 99 Rooms

is a unique internet art project that interweaves wall painting, photography, animation and sound in a manner entirely unknown until now. Shortly after its launch in June 2004, more than two million individuals throughout the world have already visited this interdisciplinary composite work of art.

99rooms stemmed from the mystical, often apolocalyptically charming pictures created by Berlin artist Kim Köster within the countless vacated premises of East Berlin‘s industrial sector. Photos of these paintings were initially produced in digital form and then animated through a cooperative effort between Richard Schumann & Stephan Schulz and then subsequently complemented through a personal sounddesign from Johannes Buenemann. The final product of this year long effort is a scintillating intermediary world which invites the observer into an journey through its morbidly-beautiful rooms.

Creative Awareness To 480,000 Problem

As reported by Adgabber.com

To demonstrate what human trafficking can be like, STOP THE TRAFFIK went to a career fair in London and invited young women into a “gallery” of top jobs abroad.

The women found themselves in a red light district-style window, feather boa included. We can only imagine the five excruciating minutes of mortification they must have felt after they realized what was going on.This is pretty much how many women get into the sex trade. They’re talked into a decent-wage job opportunity and take the plunge. The difference is, they can’t walk back out and giggle about it later.

The effort was orchestrated by Duval Guillaume, Antwerp.
