My design will on display at the Trigger Design Show NYC during NYC x Design week. The theme of the show is Gun Violence, and my entry is called “Guts”. I am excited to see everybody’s work and how the show turns out.
The apples are 3-D printed ceramics, and the guts are hand-painted silicone.
My Artist Statement: Entry and exit wounds applied to inanimate objects to illustrate how a minor action can have drastic consequences. Guns elevate the shooter by offering distance, and thus removal, from their impact. Bullets cause gory messes with almost no physical exertion required from the user. Apples symbolize the targeted innocence of the victims.
