Political Porn

This piece is a piece i create for my collage assignment and i decided to name it political porn. to understand the meaning behind this art let me dissect it piece by piece.
the most apparent thing in this is obviously the American Flag and unless it is clear, it represents what this piece is about American Politics! see i moved to America 5 years ago and since i moved here i became fascinated with American politics, why you ask? i don’t know; maybe it is because i admire the freedom of this country where everything can be discussed which is the complete opposite of what happens in Burundi (this is where i am from).
For this piece i decided to focus on the most covered stories of the last few months. The President’s “real identity”, the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords, the Boxing match between Democrats and Republicans, the Economy, the Bald Eagle which the symbol of The USA, the incompetency of Congress, the different shooting victims, the different rights being fought for.
i called this piece political porn because i use to hate to watch the news before coming to America because the news used to make me feel depressed. this piece is basically a way of me to talk about what grabbed my attention the most whether i wanted it or not. let’s not forget that this is just some of the news covered severally not all that was covered by the different news Outlets.
