Andrea Simonato, Static Points

We think these polaroids by Andrea Simonato are a great way to explore the concept of Slow Art Day. Does looking at a photograph with such a strong action word influence your actions in real life? In other words, does the word depicted have an authority over the viewer? When scrolling past these images on your dashboard or on our tumblr, did you “stop?” Why do you think the artist chose to focus on the word “stop” instead of a different one, like “slow” or “yield?”
