Model Poses in Sandy's Destruction
Do people have no shame anymore when it comes to publicity?
Wait...this doesn't surprise me at all.
Publicity is all about doing something that gets attention. Model Nana Gouvêa got attention. Posing amid Sandy's destruction.
I like the Internet Memes that have sprung up showing Gouvêa inserted into different tragedies.
Alas, that just gives her more free publicity, which is probably what this was all about.
If this had been done in the name of Art (with a capital"A"), would it have made a difference?
Perhaps if there was a vision or a message being sent, I would think, yes.
What do you think? Can and should Art be made from devastation?
