As Kosovo declares independence, thousands have signed their name on this monumental public sculpture that reads “newborn.”
Even knowing that artists tend to see life as art – and thereby run the risk of lessening the weight, import and scope of a situation – I still think this image shows how visual symbolism can unify and represent a sprawling moment.
Looks like there are hooks on the tops of each letter. Wonder why. Anybody who finds more information about this piece, please share.
