What defines this as art or does it? The meaning of seeing each little seed as a human being changes your view of “Sunflower Seeds” you no longer see them as simple seeds but as individuals massed together forming one sculpture. When I saw this piece, I thought of creation, God creates sunflower seeds and people each unique as well. I also thought of me as one of those seeds all jumbled together with other people struggling for people to see me. Even if you hate this particular work of art you have to admit it makes you think. http://www.freshnessmag.com/2010/10/12/ai-weiwei-sunflower-seeds-100-million-porcelain-sunflower-seeds-flood-tate-modern/
Looking back at what I wrote, I realized I never really answered those questions, in fact I only added more. Yes, I know that this is not your typical Indie Girl blog, but sometimes being Indie is seeing if you can do something different seeing if you can think outside of the box. If anything, I hope I at least gave you some food for thought and introduced you to a modern artist that you otherwise may not have known of.
I don’t normally ask this but please if you have any thoughts on this let me know. Tell me what you think. Tell me what makes art; art for you. Now this Indie Girl must go and create something! J
