Installation artist Michael Murphy’s are a little different from most artists – to see his works ‘properly’ you must be standing at just the right angle. One of his latest works, called Damage, consists of 1,200 ping pong balls, painted black, and then suspended from a ceiling.
Damage is meant as a way for us to really start talking about the controversial role guns play in today’s society. According to Michael:
“Guns are fetishized in the U.S. Many, many Americans love guns. I’m creating a giant gun.” He continues, “I just want people to keep talking about guns [and] why we should have guns. Communication is necessary because I don’t see any sort of solution being proposed.”
All we can say is “wow”.
