TARGETING LOVE

This work seeks to memorialize in a public forum those who have lost their lives to gun violence. The intent is to raise awareness of the great number of individuals who have died or suffered loss due to gun violence and to influence law makers to act to reduce the opportunity and effect of gun violence in today’s society. The image of all those who have been affected by violence and who are now forgotten, coming together to attach their heart to the Target, could be a powerful moment to let their story once again be heard. This is an opportunity to have a local public places where the “weight of their history as victims of gun violence” and by inference, to raise awareness of the inability of our society to address this problem, could be felt in this huge Open Wire Sculpture Anthropomorphic Target with hundreds if not thousands of heart representing victims of gun violence.
