Blessed or Cursed?
We live in a society were symbols represent who we are. A heart = love, an apple = health, a Ferrari = wealth, a diamond = commitment, a wheelchair = patience, a black outfit = mourning. Throughout the years we have found ways to interpret these features into our everyday lives giving them a new meaning and breaking barriers. What happens though when one of our strongest symbol which = loyalty,humanity,respect,devotion and redemption is attempted by designers to be interpreted into new meanings? What happens when you take a symbol that dynamic and influential out of its context knowing that it will create controversy and anger to some in order to make it more approachable. What happens when the CROSS enters our bathrooms, our fashion, our art, our music our sexually active beds ? What happens when we take down the symbol and lie on it? Do we make it stronger by making it part of our lives or do we ridicule it?
The historic question is BLESSED OR CURSED?
