For my life centered issue project in Dr. Krug's Art Education class I
deal with Ecological Restoration. My focus is on the coming together of
rural and urban communties. My focus artist is Agnes Denes. On of her
works is called Wheatfield. This field was harvested and then send to
horses stabled by the New York City Police Department, and also send
around the world in a end of hunger exhibition. This is
a life centered issue because hunger affects everbody. Either you turn
on the television and are asked to send money around the world or you
are in need of food.
The visible aspects of the work is what you see. The viewer sees a
beautiful wheatfield set among the skyscrapers of downtown Manhatten.
The invisible aspects of this work are the emotions people internalize
from viewing the work.
Wheatfield affected people of all ages and the people of Manhatten
wanted Denes to continue the work. I believe it made people think about
the mismanagment of resources in America and brought them back to their
senses. What do you think?
