Priorities by Jennifurret Priorities by Jennifurret
I'm really happy with this piece, though this isn't the greatest photo of it...I'll be able to get a better shot once school is out. The general idea I was trying to get across was how in today's culture we're so worried about shallow things-make up, face lifts, fashion- that we're oblivious to the terrible things going on around us. All the time and money we waste on producing material, superficial goods could be going towards AIDs or cancer research, feeding the hungry, etc, etc. The idea for the piece kind of popped out at me when I saw an infomercial for face lifts on TV, but I was also influenced by a piece with a similar message done by my friend Jimmy last year.

wow thats awesome:) great message. You are absolutely right. But do you know of things that a person can do to help out? I mean i stopped giving money to people on the streets..because i dont trust that they will put it to good use anymore. So do you have any suggestions?
Great picture. Great point.
