Artist Creates a Giant Sculpture out of Cheese Puffs to Raises Awareness About Gun Violence
Iranian artist Sharareh Khosravani has recently created a large gun sculpture made out of cheese puffs that addresses difficult issues with a humorous twist. The piece called “Warning” aims to generate discussion around gun violence and the emotional scars it leaves on countless children in today's society. Via her website, "I hoped to add a dimension of humor to the warning. In part this work came about because of events such as the Boston Marathon bombing and recent school shootings that made me think about the way violence affects children today. We want to believe that schools are safe places and children are innocent, but sometimes that safety is only an illusion. You may feel safe even when you are actually in the line of fire."
