Weekly Photo Challenge – Descent

This week’s photo challenge is Descent and I decided to take the metaphorical route this time. I saw this piece of graffiti art in New York City, a place that is absolutely fantastic for such pieces of work. To me there are many layers to this piece – some would say it symbolizes the descent of a city to the hooligans who think graffiti is art. To others it could represent the descent into madness and nightmares. Yet others may see it as a graphical representation on what illness, physical or mental, means in their life. Me, I just wonder what frame of mind the artist was in when this was created – serious or humorous? But perhaps that is what makes art so intriguing – it can be whatever you want it to be in any given moment in time.

  2. I’m sure it was made with some humour, but for me it just creeps me out. Not sure how the whole wall looks, but disembodied mouths are disconcerting!
