A creepy photocaptured byGoogle Street Viewof twobodies apparently awaiting their burials in shallow graves has recently made the rounds on Reddit.
Social media users were quite alarmed after they discovered the aerial image showing twoopen graves with piles of soil besideandtwo men seemingly fitting perfectly into them.
The photo raised many questions as some asked why there weren’t any shovels to be seen at the “burial site.”
A logical explanation wassoon given as it was later announced that the two men in the graves were actually Stan Shellabarger andDutesMiller, two artists from Chicago.
The image was actually an artwork created by the two artists, named “Untitled (Graves),”and was shown at a Western Exhibitions art gallery in Illinois a few years ago.
According to foreign media, the two are partners in making art about love, distance anddeath.
For this particular project, they laid in their graves and dug atunnelsidewaysso that they could hold hands “eternally.”
The image was later captured through the use of a crane.
The two art pieces are titled, “Untitled (Graves)” and “Untitled 1 (Grave, Basel, Switzerland) 2008.” (Photos courtesy of Western Exhibitions website)
Miller previously said in an interview that many of their artworks are centered around “mortality.”
As people get older, mortality becomes more prevalent in discussions.
He added thatwhen you care aboutanother person, sooner or later,you’ll need to facethe fact that you could be separated by death. Yet, it also represents the “strong emotional bond” existing between people.
