Buildings As Weapons Series

This work personifies buildings by pointing them at one another and is in response to the media’s continual use of the phrase, “buildings as weapons” when referring to the lengths our opponents have resorted to in the ‘war on terror.’  In the background of the building pieces I am using imagery from the past, more specifically photographs of former presidents and other political ‘heroes’ (or villains) from American history.  By including these I mean to first, call into question their idolization and second, attempt to associate or incriminate them some how with the present day.
