Transformation is art

This week’s Photo Challenge is about transformation. Like most people, when I first heard that word, I thought of withering leaves and how nature changes. But then I remembered change happens even in unnatural instances.

While at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, I saw creatives from artists all over the world. Each piece on display is a testament to its artist. One particular exhibit, however, was a testament to another person.

Barack Obama became one the world’s favourite politicians during his presidency. And sure enough, the most most of us would’ve seen of Obama is from our living rooms as we lounged on our couches. Or from reading the newspapers. This artist combined the two in a marvellous piece of art, transforming a simple couch into a timeline trophy of the once-president. This couch is covered with newspaper articles about Barack Obama during his eight years as president of the United States of America. Now that’s art worthy of a jaw drop.
