Chris Fitzgerald writes, "Faced with the complexity and horror of mass shootings, and the helplessness I feel to make any sort of positive change, I tried to channel that energy into an art project that explored non traditional organic materials in the construction of projectiles."
I don't imagine that this series will alter anyone's perception about gun control. I think that often, political art tends to get saddled with too much responsibility in that way. It's rare that any one thing changes any of us. We are made of the pieces of experiences that we choose to remember or can't make ourselves forget. Most of us, myself included, are looking for evidence that backs up our own opinions. Maybe I was creating my own evidence.
