Te Ao Hurihuri – Cyber Bullying artist research

I googled cyber bullying artwork and found a few different types of artwork. paintings and photo shop made artwork mostly.  I wanted to talk about the words used when cyber bullying. There are so many hurtful words used. ‘Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me’ is a stock response to verbal bullying in school playgrounds throughout the English-speaking world. It sounds a little antiquated these days and has no doubt been superseded by more streetwise comebacks. The earliest citation of it that I can find is from an American periodical with a largely black audience, The Christian Recorder, March 1862: Remember the old adage, ‘Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me’. True courage consists in doing what is right, despite the jeers and sneers of our companions. (Martin) This quote is a well known quote but in my eyes its wrong. words can definitely hurt people and they do strongly. my idea of artwork is to use silhouette shapes and words to get my point across. similar to this image that i found on twitter.
