Artist and Maker
Enough is a passion project completed in December 2018 as a visual and physical representation of the lives lost to mass shootings in America since 1982. This piece, laying around 4′ long, consists of 872 bullet casings – 1 bullet casing per life lost in a *mass shooting since 1982 (*defined by 3 or more deaths) up until 11/7/18 when the piece was completed.
The goal was to visually communicate the amount of lives lost in mass shootings in America. A number that is far above what it should be, and is only growing. How many lives will be enough before address the issue and take action on gun control?
