Last week, I stumbled upon this article about an artist who created artwork to send out an important message to society. Artist Mark Jenkins, created different scenes such as bodies lying on the floor, sitting at the edge of a building, and floating in a pond. He created these scenes to make a statement about how we should pay attention to our surroundings and environment more and stop giving all our attention to cell phones and the virtual world. His artwork is effective due to the 911 calls reporting these “bodies.”
To be honest, at first I was taken back by the photos, but then when I looked to see what it was really about I liked his ideas; they are sending a message to society that is important. Mark Jenkins was very clever to come up with these startling scenes and install them into urban places.
