This week I discovered art work that showed stores closed down. The art was photographed by David Yamamoto. I feel for this art work because my parents are small business owners and we have been on the verge of closing many times. And if my store were to close, where would my family’s income come from? What happens to the workers? Its an economic downhill spiral and the images portrayed by Yamamoto is very heart touching in a sad way.
Yamamoto’s intentions were to create a message to the audience about how the economy is down. Many businesses try but eventually everything has to come to an end. Even such a big company like Circuit City can close down. Art has emotions and this art piece is definitely truthful but also painful.
