There’s something about the morbid and macabre …I  can’t turn away from it!  I wrote about this in a post last year (Weekend Observations: Death Becomes Me) after visiting an exhibit at the Museum of Arts and Design called Dead or Alive: Nature Becomes Art.

What’s so interesting about this exhibit, is that the artist, Goncalo Mabunda, takes objects of war and pain and turns them into art!  He’s not so much finding beauty in death, than he is honoring the dead and taking these instruments of death out of deadly hands.  He in a CNN piece: “If we destroy the weapons, the same weapon’s not going to kill any more,”
