I recently came across a really great project by Mike Campau who used CGI and photography to convey his political thoughts through visual imagery. Here are Mike’s own words about the project, taken from his website:

I never talk politics on social media (or even with friends) as it usually leads to a heated discussion, hurt feelings, and a few “F” bombs. So, I decided to convey my thoughts through images. Whether you are liberal or conservative, we can all agree there are some major problems facing our country right now. Everything from government corruption, broken justice system, religion (or lack there of), poor diet and nutrition, the shock value “look at me” YouTube generation, and how we have all become desensitized and almost apathetic in our response to hate crimes and mass shootings. I’m not here to get on a soap box and say who is right or wrong, but to invoke a sense of urgency to make a change before it’s beyond repair.

The images use a visual metaphor of a living tree being cut down, disassembled into logs, and
burned to the point where it has little to no value

    Pueril and boring cliche: “since I don´t know how to mend what I see wrong, I propose to burn all… then we try to rebuild again, and voilà”.
