Historically, the survival of an individual, tribe, region or country has largely depended on its progress
in the arms-race; its ability to hunt, protect, attack, defend, disarm, thrive and evolve. A strong military
arsenal or personal weapon can be both an intimidating threat or a peacetime deterrent.
The global military industrial complex is at the forefront of cutting-edge technology and engineering.
It constantly pushes the technological boundaries and is the biggest business enterprise in the world.
Aside from arms and military capability, it has given the world other kinds of technological breakthroughs.
Double-edged swords such as digital communication and smart production platforms including the internet,
mobile phones, GPS, robotics, space programs and AI.
The very idea of weapons is understandably a polarizing subject, the nature of this is extreme and bipolar
with contradictory design elements of beauty and ugliness. Firearms specifically have their own distinctive
aesthetics and represent the dualities of creation and destruction, mechanical
and organic, terrifying and inspiring, order and chaos, light and dark. Technology truly expresses and brings
out the best and the worst within all
Guns are weapons used with hands and arms as an extension of the human form, they are fundamentally analogue
tools that have evolved from archery, sword and spear. This project 'Ballistics’ consists of a series of photographs,
sculptures and video installations created using different caliber guns and bullets.
