This is Not A Gun, 2017
An ongoing project made with urgency. Driven by the artistic actions of resistance in the first 100 days of the 45th president's term, I have begun to carve all of these objects in wood, with a hands' grip leaving its impression. I do this as an act of prayer, respect and remembrance. Using these objects as catalyst, I plan to lead conversation about institutional racism and gun violence inflicted by police. I will post the objects as they are completed. Information about related events will be posted on my Upcoming page. This list was found here*.
*I have inquired about the nature of the crimes committed, the victims themselves, and the sources for this list from Harper's Magazine, my source, but am yet to receive a response. I plan to add more objects to this list as they are revealed - but pray that this common error be short-lived.
Please follow in Instagram for more in process updates of this work.
