Miami-based artist Asif Farooq meticulously creates highly detailed replicas of guns out of found cardboard. His work question issues like gun violence and mass production and is especially relevant in the midst of recent gun control debates. Asif explains, "My interest in guns is in the idea of visual representation as personal metaphor. As a tool for communication – which is often the intended function of actual guns – they’re universally recognized. So, much as a writer uses words, or a musician uses notes, I use guns to communicate. "
