Brooklyn Artist Turns Street Signs into Post Apocalyptic Weapons

Imagining a distant post-holocaust future in which native residents of Brooklyn defend themselves against invaders and each other, artist Coby Kennedy has been taking street signs and using them to create swords, shields, machetes and other crude weapons. A long time resident of Brooklyn, Kennedy created the series titled “In Service of a Villain” as an artistic response to the rapid gentrification around him. "It’s based on a narrative which reflects contemporary situations,” Kennedy told ANIMAL in an interview for Metro New York. “A lot of the street signs are from places in Brooklyn that have history and weight, places that are losing that particular culture.”
