        • No Safe Place


          from Diane cionni Added 113 1 0

          In this video, Mike Hay documents the painting and sculpture based installation No Safe Place exhibited at the Fine Arts Work Center gallery in Provincetown, Massachusetts in September 2013 by artist Diane Cionni. Artist Statement: The installation merges several separate project based artworks including drawings and digital paintings created in direct response to the shooting massacres in Aurora, Colorado and at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Gun Collection: The foil guns featured in the video are from a project in which I initiated dialogue with gun collectors in my own community seeking to understand why assault weapons are being purchased and collected in unprecedented numbers. In open discussions with friends, neighbors and acquaintances, I learned that assault weapons and other firearms were in the collections of many if not most of the people I know in my small rural Colorado community. Subsequent to numerous conversations and interviews, I borrowed weapons from their collections to make these foil hand embossed artifacts from the actual guns owned by all the people I dialogued with about gun ownership. Gunshots and Fireworks: Exploring the element of the universal pleasure of watching explosions and how that figures in the desire to collect firearms, I used digital photos as a subject to make a grid of colorful paintings depicting explosions. One set of paintings is based on photos appropriated from gun enthusiast blogs of muzzle-loaded gunshots posted by members. Intermingled are paintings from photos I took myself of fireworks in my town for a 4th of July celebration. In Smoking Gun, I considered the recent mega merchandising by the firearms industry to market guns as a luxury item similar to an IPod or designer handbag and asked myself how that might translate to a department store window display. Using materials typical in retail merchandising, I attempted to make six shotgun sculptures the subject of allure, placing them upon an acrylic pedestal filled with flashing colored LED lights below a video monitor playing a loop of a beautiful flume of smoke. The hollow backs of the foil guns are exposed in the mirror backdrop, which also catches the reflection of the viewer. The gong sounds heard in the video played continually in the gallery from Bluetooth speakers hidden in the crumpled metal debris sculpture on the corner floor of the gallery. Gongs are the most ancient instrument and long used when it is most important to get the attention of a large group of people. The composition was created in collaboration with Sam Caparelli who uses gongs and sound frequencies in her healing practice of combining ancient and contemporary healing modalities. The impetus for this installation is to elicit dialogue. The highly emotional polarity that exists between gun enthusiasts and anti-gun factions prevents everyone from finding creative solutions to the crisis of gun violence in the U.S. Ordinary, everyday people are deadlocked over the issue of gun ownership with each side is becoming more and more fortified in its stance. This hardened polarity results in the perpetuation of unnecessary tragedy and death, and bigger and bigger profits for weapons manufacturers.

          • Fools with Guns


            from Asafo GC Added 42 0 0

            This clip was filmed in a nearby neighborhood park a short while after the 2012 4th of July celebrations. With the playground not far off, someone fired their guns in "celebration" of this highly misunderstood, yet coveted holiday among our people, leaving ammo casings on the ground. Through the sharing of this video, it is hoped that we can educate the ignorant that believe celebratory firing of guns makes sense. It is also our hope that they will come to the understanding that bullets do not discriminate when set free from a gun. That shooting into the air is definitely not a guarantee that no one will be injured or killed, and that it actually increases the chances that someone will be injured or killed. Let's stop the ignorance and draw hard lines, so we don't lose anymore Michelle's and other loved ones to stupidity. We have to make the cost of stupidity and negligence in our neighborhoods and among our people too high a price to pay.

              Critics of loose US gun laws look to Japan's stringent gun control legislation and its low crime rate. In contrast to the United States, Japan has some of the toughest guns laws in the world. Pro-ban lobbyists in Japan point to the low gun death rate, amounting to barely a dozen each year, as evidence that gun control works. Al Jazeera’s Rob McBride reports from Japan.
