A Boo Grave:
Wow, ridiculously bad taste, the first two.
I think that’s the concept?
Ooh, a concept, how artistic! I loooove seeing kids used as props to recreate a torture scene! Yippee!!! (insert frowny face, sarcastic tone)
According to Adorno & Horkheimer art should be full of meaning and revolution and not just be nice and entertaining.
I see these pictures as stating an important case. Many people didn’t care about the pictures from Abu Graib when they involved Afghans – are they less people than children?
I’m glad how this artist managed to provoke you
I like how you used the children to deliver emotional filled images. At first I did not notice the details, just saw children in photos but as I looked more deeply I saw what you were trying to portray.
Blah blah blah, art provokes. Abu ghraib actually stunned me, I followed the news closely. Don’t throw me in the pool with those who didn’t care. This is just low-brow art masquerading as high-brow art. Haha good luck with that!
I find it thought provoking actually. The message becomes much stronger for me by the fact that he has used children (we did not create this, we can’t take credit for it). I really can’t see what offends you here. Who’s the victim? Or are you actually Helen Lovejoy? http://simpsons.wikia.com/wiki/Helen_Lovejoy
