Assault Rifle Created from 1,200 Suspended Ping Pong Balls
American multimedia artist Michael Murphy has recently created a sculpture composed of hundreds of suspended black ping pong balls, which when viewed from the right angle transform into a graphic illusion of an AR-15 assault rifle. The piece called “Damage” aims to generate discussion around the subject of gun control. Speaking about the project Michael says, "Historically, the black ball was used in secret ballots to signify opposition. Here they are used openly to signify opposition to the gun culture and culture of violence that we currently have in the United States."
