Apparently Photo Mosaics are a new form of satire.
The first is a photo mosaic of George Bush’s face from American Leftist, this blogger. He’s pretty well reasoned. The choice of images is controversial, so I should let him explain himself:
Given this image’s inflammatory nature, I posted it with a great deal of trepidation. I had a hard time deciding if it was the right thing to do and I am still not sure. No, I didn’t have the consent of the families of those pictured, and I apologize for any additional pain that this image causes them. That said, I must say that it is my belief that one distinguishing characteristic between art and other forms of speech is that art takes risks, and if we, as a society, value art we must allow it more leeway than other modes of expression to incite or offend.
I think the soldiers in Iraq are doing the right thing, and I think that they and their families and friends are incredibly brave people. I watched this MSNBC audio slideshow about Iraq Soldiers injured in battle and back home recovering. I wish them all the best.
This is a photo mosaic of John Ashcrofts face made from porn images, in reference to his recently declared War On Porn. I saw it on Wonkette, but it’s directly from HubLog. This is a link to a large image I’ve mirrored here.
There is also a Photo Mosaic of George W. Bush composed entirely of assholes, but my mom read’s this so I will just provide a discreet link. There’s also a photo mosaic of Rumsfeld composed of soldiers who have died in Iraq (God bless them and their families). Incidentally, all of the Bush Administration high-ups (except Powell) avoided service in Vietnam.
