The vase-like sculptures in this series are composed of 3D printed Liberator guns, the first 3D modeled, open-source software handgun available online, to download for free. Multiplying the form, the Liberator is parametrically modeled, obfuscated, clustered, and rendered obsolete. Potentially unregulated violence is transformed into a domestic, aesthetic object, calling to mind classic anti-war images of protesters putting flowers in gun barrels.
