Taking off the Gloves




Mapping Time counts gun deaths in the course of a three-month exhibit. Each Sunday one candle was lit to honor a life taken from gun violence in the US that week (excluding suicide). Approximately 3500 candles were lit. The sage or goddess of hope sits above the USmap overseeing the tragedy. Offering a place of refuge within her heart, the opening contains a video of waves lapping slowed to the rhythm of a heartbeat.

Taking off the Glvoes detail

Artist Holly Ballard Martz, Pcandle-lightingoet Daemond Arrindell, and myself take an intimate look down the barrel – contemplating gun rights, the loss of life, and the search for healing in touching, powerful and sometimes darkly humorous ruminations on America’s weapon of choice.Poetry, sculpture, video and performance meld to tell the saga of gun culture in the exhibit.  KISS FEAR Candles are lit every Sunday to honor lives lost to gun violence that week.   November 3, 2016 – January 28, 2017
