Simply beautiful.
You are very brave to share such horrid subjects about inequality, violence and terror to this audience. I respect your work to the deepest.

Inequality will persist...
Money is a prison...

When you are minor and you don't earn money, you are told to not talk to strangers... What do you have to do? Be heartless or empathic?

I think he is really sexy
A homeless man usually comes to my counter at work asking for samples of food. I try to give him extra if no bosses are around. I feel really bad. I was kicked out at a young age. I'm thankful I never had to spend nights on the streets because I was taken in by a non profit organization the next day. Yeah, a lot of homeless are in their situation because of bad life choices. I grew up in poverty because my parent chose bad life choices. I can't judge the man at the counter because I don't know how he ended up in poverty.

You're awesome. Thanks for building this.

Try to make it a bit more realistic. Like the pavement and stone walls are a bit to clean. Same for the model, but guess the nameless man needs no face to support the message in this piece of art.

I get your artistic statement, but think you can bring it even more next level by let it pop out of our screens. Your artisitic message will even have a greater reach when you do so (my opinion).

Great job, nevertheless.

I know i commented before but I have to say, I find this more interesting than usual, because I can see you in the future further progressing with these pieces, not only in the creativity of them but also in your skillset, regardless of the fact that they are both very strong as it is :). If you haven't heard of him yet (Maybe you have, just a suggestion), you should check out Pawel Kuczynski's work. Maybe that can give you some inspiration. I enjoy things like this and I think one day you can actually turn this stuff into even greater pieces of work than you are already doing now ;). Fascinating to think about, Diamond for you !!!

Unfortunately if you know the truth, you would turn the other way as well. Not saying that there aren't people with real situations, but majority of the time it's not what you think it is.

I have no idea what "truth" you are coming up with. Poverty and housing costs play a major role in most people's "real situations" and the vast majority of those that are homeless are children and the disabled.

Feel free to do the research yourself.

Here is one article regarding the United States:

And here I did a Google search for you using the keywords "Statistics of Homelessness"

Most people turn away because they buy into the "truth" the media has spoon fed them, when in fact it is nothing more than a stereotype. Social experiments have been done where people's own family members were disguised as homeless people and they weren't recognized and were walked away from. Their own family. Do you really want to be that kind of person?

Okay, maybe you wouldn't really turn away, but you would be skeptical of the situation. Yes, there are a lot of people that really are in these situations, but there are also a lot of people that aren't. I'm around the homeless almost everyday, that's just how the downtown area is. If you're familiar with the term panhandling, then this is what I was getting at.

It sucks that there's so many of these people that it just creates a blur of what's real and what's not. So yeah, what I said is a bit much. You shouldn't turn away at first sight, but it would make you question yourself the next time someone asks you for spare change.

I mean how can you really tell unless you ask them, right? And how do you know they aren't lieing to you?

But great job, you did your research. Thanks for the information (-:

I have been one of these people before having children - due to a family dispute between my mother and her sisters. My mother thought things were settled and good between them and when one of them needed a nanny she thought it was fine to send me across the country to fill the position. Well things weren't fine and I was tossed out. To this day I'm still not sure what all happened. I just know that I was informed that I would be living with my other aunt and I would be working with her at her restaurant from then on. Shortly after that I was informed by co-workers that I had a week to move out of her place. So when the week came up, she asked for my copy of the key and saw me out. My parents were told I ran away. Since I was 19 and across the country, the police did nothing about it.

I wasn't diagnosed with Bipolar yet and this triggered a bad episode for me so getting help for myself wasn't exactly possible either. Mania does weird things to your brain and your thinking. I bounced from place to place - even slept outside a few times - for about a year. Believe it or not, the entire time I had a job waiting on tables. In the end I got lucky, an old friend from high school somehow tracked me down and got me back home. Looking back at all I don't know how I didn't end up in the drug scene or the sex trade. Not everyone gets so lucky as I did.

Yes, I am skeptical when people ask me for money but I didn't hesitate to buy someone food when I lived in Boston after that if I had been seeing them sleep on the street a couple of days. Not one of them complained when I brought them a sandwich or a cup of coffee instead of a dollar. I live in the country now so I don't see it quite so much. Around here people tend to take you in rather than see you out in the cold - but then again around here almost everyone is related to somebody.

Sorry to hear that, yes I give out food rather than money these days too. It just sucks that people take advantage of this and put on a skit to get free money.

I just find it weird that you can sometimes catch them slip out their expensive smart phones and get picked up in nice cars after their day of panhandling is over.
The fact that people are so nice and willing to help no questions asked is awesome, but you just gotta help the right people!

That's appalling. :( I have personally never seen that. Either I am terribly blind, terribly good at picking out who I have helped in the past, or a mix of both. In retrospect, there was only one person that I questioned. When I revisited Boston 2 years later with my sister to check out colleges with her, all but one remembered me. It saddened me to see them still there, but I was happy that they still knew my name - even though I suck at remembering theirs. The vet that liked his coffee black and unfiltered cigarettes always sitting not far from the news stand in the afternoon. The two men that will share a jumbo sandwich from the Greenhouse Cafe that I used to work at. And then there was the woman near the pharmacy who didn't even recognize my face. That's the one I question. There are others I remember, but she was the only one that wouldn't take anything but money - claiming she needed meds for diabetes. You would think she would remember the people that helped her out, even if she couldn't remember names. But maybe that's just me?
I like how all of your amazing builds have deeper meanings, instead of most which are just decorative! Love it!

It's really sad how one can lose everything really fast.
I have lots of experience with homeless people, and even consider many of them to be my friends. This project spoke multitudes and shouted out one of their biggest frustrations. Beautiful.
