dc.description.abstractThis research aims to further establish the position of visual communication design as an agent of meta-systemic political engagement. It responds to the question: “How can visual communication design visualise disillusionment with politics?” It explores creative responses to contemporary modes of environmental activism and the recent trend in non-traditional political participation, as well as critically reviews the role of visual culture in contemporary environmental protest movements. Through this exegesis, I explore the need for new modes of political engagement in Australia and critically analyse the work of key practitioners who employ visual art and design to engage with political issues. I use a practice-based research methodology and a range of methods, including visual discourse analysis, creative practice, public dissemination of visual communication, and peer review to address the research question. The results of this research are focused on a major creative outcome, in the form of a series of digital posters, which visualise disillusionment with politics through visual communication design, remixed media, collage, and absurdist imagery.
