Barbara Kruger Assignment
In this piece I see a historic statue looking over a man texting someone, or maybe he's checking his email on his blackberry. It seems like the man is ignoring the statue or oblivious of it's presence. His mind is completely absorbed in what he is doing.
2. What kind of message is the artist giving in this piece of art?
I think the message mocks the change society has gone through with quickly developing technology, and the change in society's priorities. Technology seems to have completely taken over!
3. Do you like or dislike Kruger's work? Why?
I really like the satire Kruger creates in her work. I find her mocking of society humorous, especially with this piece.
