About This Artwork: Assuming I call this "sniper," what then does it say about the feeling of rest, or unrest? I made this out of a simple hand fan - something that gives relief in heated situations. Why can't something like this also give relief in a more violent fantasy, symbolic way? While making this and seeing how it was forming into a kind of gun, I thought about these things and began to justify how similar their uses were. If that makes me a creep, so be it.
