Art to Call 911 for…
No, don’t be alarmed, that’s not an ACTUAL dead body. It’s not even a body at all, but art. Yes, art. One man’s interpretation of the beauty of… well, no. I don’t even know what he was thinking, and I couldn’t even guess.
Yahoo! News reported the following:
‘Mark Jenkins creates works of art that he installs in urban areas. The disturbing scenes of people stepping off buildings or floating in rivers attract attention and are so realistic that startled pedestrians have reported the “bodies” to police. Jenkins’ intention is to create scenes that force city dwellers to drop their cell phones and interact with their environment.’
So… what do you think he tells people about his profession when he first meets them?… ‘I make dead people…’ Okay, that was bad, but really… what can you say? He MAKES dead people!
