They’re The World’s Most Fearsome Fighting Team

Everything we learned about turtles as kids completely did not jive with the Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles. Somehow these notoriously slow creatures morphed into fierce fighters under the mentorship of a rat.

Then they ended up in an environmental art piece at New Museum’s 2015 Triennial. Timeless Alex (2015) by Eduardo Navarros looks at life from a turtle’s point of view, which is the antithesis to the crazy fast digital life we lead.

 

Maybe there’s a lesson for all of us in this. Like find the piece within, go in on some pizza, and you too can take on Shredder!

 

 

 

The New Museum’s Triennial is on view through May 24th.
