Refugee life jackets turned into art is both beautiful and disturbing

Refugee life jackets turned into art is both beautiful and disturbing

To bring attention to the plight of refugees stuck at sea, Chinese artist Ai Weiwei used discarded lifejackets as a beautiful yet disturbing medium for a new art installation.
