I’m Anna. I studied Sociology & Anthropology in school. I did a stint in the Peace Corps, and now I spend too much time online. Bienvenidos a mi blog. I post/reblog things I like: graff, street art, architecture, cupcakes, decay, New York City, abandoned buildings, beautiful landscape, cute animals, and even a few quality quotes . I always try to link pictures to their original source, but if I posted a pic that belongs to you, and you don't want it here, please tell me, and I will remove it ASAP. Also, I'm happily married, so creepers, please get off my nutz. :)

Wolfgang Stiller‘s series Matchstickmen are a depiction of people that are literally burnt out.  The sculptures  resemble giant match sticks, the charred match head like a human head, ignited and tossed about the gallery.  A play on the phrase ‘burnt out’, the series comments on the unending demand of human labor.  Interestingly, the installation was created while the German artist was living in China.  However, Stiller says of the work:

'I don’t want to see it only as a critique on the Chinese system. Any other system in the world has the same problem. Big companies exploit their employees to make larger profits, all over the world. As long as we have affordable T-shirts or sneakers, we don’t really want to know whether they are made by children in India or not.'”
