I remember reading a Forbes article in 2009about “Why we love or need public art”? It described how people can be a dissatisfied bunch… blinded to their surroundings always fiddling around with their Smartphone's or iPod's. It explained how public art can provide a new way for people toexperience the city, to make us unite as a community.
In general, the truth about ART is it improves our quality of life, because it makes us stop and openour eyes, to appreciate things we once saw as mundane to something that ignites conversation, to something sublime. It is impossible to have a society that iscivil and educated without art. It lifts up humanity and challenges the individual who encounters it to think differently about the world. And its safe to say I think differently.
My toys are an extension of my goodwill and creativity. It's much more than just a toy, because of its responsibility of symbolizing so much, it's a source of inspiration.
