The anonymous England-based street artist, film director and political activist has been active since the 1990s and is known for satirical street art using a distinctive stenciling technique. Banksy’s latest artwork has appeared at Southampton General Hospital. The artist even left a note for hospital workers:
“Thanks for all you’re doing. I hope this brightens the place up a bit, even if its only black and white.”
It is strange to think that the art we create and the photos we take are all archiving a moment in time. This thought led us to appreciating museums and their importance in archiving our past histories.
Many museums are more accessible than ever with virtual tours, and all offering us glimpses into other moments in time that speak to ours now. They have us thinking, what will we remember when this is all over? What will we leave behind for others to remember? And whose sacrifices can we pledge to never forget?
