In 1991, Dazed & Confused, an alternative style and culture magazine was launched. The name reflected a cultural provocation and the magazine grew to a online presence, Dazed Media. Dazed magazine continues to champion radical fashion and youth culture, defining the times. Dazed’s online platform is dazeddigital.com.
”It’s been 27 years since we first went to print, and a decade or so leading digital youth publishing into the future. Last night, a first for Dazed: we published in the sky.”
Their new project, #AddressTheNation, took issues that matter and projected them on to landmarks around London: Houses of Parliament, the Ministry of Justice, The Royal Courts of Justice, and Nelson’s Column. The projections took on subjects from Theresa May‘s crumbling Brexit plans to street-level abuse of trans people at London Pride.
Dazed teamed up with a NYC activist group called The Illuminator, who travel around our pretty planet projecting righteous messages onto high-visibility corporate buildings. Most famously, they projected ”There Is A Rapist In The White House” onto the Trump International Hotel in Washington DC. Their slogan is ”Shining a light on the urgent issues of our time”.
