Fleeing Shadows

"Increasingly, as images of tragedy are compulsively consumed during the 24-hour news cycle, the present itself appears to have become "disastrous" – a state of imminent catastrophe that is often viewed with awed fascination.

Does artwork about human suffering rouse us to indignation and action, or instead, desensitize us to the tragedy, reinforcing our indifference and passivity
as spectators?"
