Gun Violence

In Chicago, gun violence has become a public health crisis. Inspired by a Chicago Public Media series of this title, the first piece is a big data representation of how bad things really are. I reproduced a photo of three bullets I took at a military museum and created this fabric. There are 4,331 bullets here...one for each person shot in Chicago in 2016...every other hour. The second piece speaks for itself.     2016
