War and Peace

War and Peace is a poster by Kentaro Nagai as part of his collection "Piece together for Peace". Nagai has done similar works, for instance Twelve Animals is a collection that shows different Countries of the world arranged like animals. This body of work has come from his concern about the direction humanity is taking. He views the economic crisis as a unique time for human kind to take stock and make changes to our way of life. I really like his imaginative use of the map to recreate a human skull, aside from the politics behind the work I think it is a good lesson in how looking at everyday objects in a new way can lead to creative and inventory ideas.
