selective fire (2018)



Selective Fire was a project about virtual gun culture, my fascination with digital weaponry during the formative years of my youth (and today), and how that has conflicted and led to my current anti-gun political stance. The images in Selective Fire were made using a combination of appropriated assets from some of my favorite first-person shooter video games, scanned Bionicle toy pieces from my childhood, and large-format landscape photography from real life and virtual sources. The outtakes from Selective Fire then evolved into my contributions for Fictionhearted.

Selective Fire was exhibited at IRL Gallery in Cincinnati, OH from May 11th through June 1st, 2018. It was the space’s last show.
