There is a difference between a drawing in which an object is actually shown and in which it is only imagined as being there.”
Drawing, he says, is a “visual language,” which means that you use your eyes “in order to bring something into the world, which is the way you read a book.” By contrast, you can’t imagine a drawing, and therefore can’t have knowledge of that art. You can only know some of its qualities by watching it; you don’t have to think about it.
The point in asking this question is not that any given drawing or photograph is superior to others, though sometimes certain kinds of writing are easier to read than others. It’s more that art is not the only way to do that.
On June 24, 2013, in the middle of a crowded field, a 15-year-old boy named Josh Siegel was riding his bicycle to the school bus stop behind his home. His family had already seen a news story about an 18-year-old with similar concerns. The man’s story was just as frighteningly different from his friend’s.
Josh had tried to kill himself once at school, but had since decided to focus on his life outside of school and he and his family saw the video on Facebook, something he thought of as a “cool video”.
This video was posted to the website, and immediately the world of social media erupted as the internet was consumed with the story of a student attempting to take his own life by placing a self-destructing suicide bomb on school property. The video was a chilling warning, in which a young boy was confronted with the prospect of attempting suicide while on school property… and he was afraid!
So why do these things happen? What is it that makes me hesitant to post these things? Are the videos all of a sudden all of a sudden okay to post?
I think it’s safe to say, I’m much less fearful of suicide now than when I was a teenager. I’ve read numerous articles describing the effects that watching these videos (of which there are many) can have on the suicidal person.
I’m not a scientist, I don’t have some research-based theory. My personal experience, however, is that suicide attempt is still the third leading cause of death – and that can have a significant impact on a person’s life.
Here is a list of suicide attempts in 2013:
