More on the meme, restorative justice and social media
Mar 05, 2012
Meme: Memes are contagious patterns of cultural information that are passed from mind to mind and that directly shape and generate key actions and mindsets of a social group. Memes include popular tunes, catch-phrases, clothing fashions, architectural styles, ways of doing things, and so on.
....As soon as I saw some of these different meme’s going around, I wanted to make one for Restorative Justice. If a picture is worth a thousand words, than six photos is 6,000 words at once. Like Restorative Justice, the UthinkIdo Meme, views things from different angles.
....The Restorative Justice Meme, was a chance to look at the different view points through the lens of humor. By trying to over exaggerate – which is a form of humor. To amplify what is true, and nobody really says you can be funny. I hope by creating the RJ Meme, it actually creates a little more discussion and understanding of RJ. It was difficult to pick the different angles, the different photos. If you have further thoughts I’d like to hear them!
