Share 'Checking the Cost of Gun Violence (close-up of gun) by Harriete Estel Berman'
The new handle for my gun was fabricated from recycled tin cans. Ironically it was from a game tin called, Scene It. The handle is printed with 2 + players and 13 - Adult.
I thought this was very provocative, but it doesn't reflect the gun statistics that there are almost twice as many suicides as murders, and that 5 children under the age of 13 are killed every week.
This sculpture was created for an exhibition titled Imagine, Peace Now. Organized by Boris Bally this show address the problems with gun violence.
"EACH DAY" "in America" there are 89 deaths due to gun violence.
In the photos below, I will describe more details. Check out the post "Vision of the Artist, Vision of the Photographer" on ASK Harriete to see some of the fabrication shots in the studio.
