Wood, Cardboard, Cheese Puff
University of Cincinnati
The gun made out of cheese puffs. Obviously the gun ties into the theme of violence but by covering it in actual cheese puffs, I hoped to add a dimension of humor to the warning. In part this work came about because of events such as the Boston Marathon bombing and recent school shootings that made me think about the way violence affects children today. We want to believe that schools are safe places and children are innocent, but sometimes that safety is only an illusion. You may feel safe even when you are actually in the line of fire.
