Ai Weiwei

Image result for ai weiwei child on the beach

About a year ago there was a three year old who drowned off a Turkish beach while attempting to flee Syria. This sparked international outrage and humanized the Syrian refugee. Ai Weiwei didn't want the public to forget it so not to long ago a photo came about of him in the same position of the young toddler, Alan Kurdi. I thought this was inspiring because in our everyday lives this will be news one day then forgotten about the next. By Ai Weiwei laying in the child's place as one of his art pieces, it will never be forgotten in the past.
