Stop The Violence

Thu Dec 6, 2012, 4:25 PM
"Stop the Violence" is a photography series done by Francois Robert in the 90's. Robert won three storage lockers at auction in the early nineties and in one he found a complete, fully articulated skeleton. Robert took the skeleton apart and began to arrange the bones into recognizable shapes, shapes that when paired with the material of human bones, create an amazing commentary on different aspects of today's world culture.

o.o weren't they a bit concerned with who the dead person was? You'd think they'd take the skeleton for research, not for him to play with.

on the other hand, this is really cool. I can't tell what the ones next to and below the grenade are, though.

From the sound of it, it was a medical school type skeleton so it probably had identification on it. I think. XD

Next to the grenade is a bomb, an atom bomb I think, and below that is the hammer and cycle symbol of the communist party.

I'm not sure about his message (using symbols of various ideologies to represent violence? Also, HIV? How is that violence?) but I damn well like his style.

It's not necessarily violence so much as it is things that divide different cultures.

Seriously, it's much more interesting than the usual run of stuff. And made more controversial by his use of unidentified human adult.
