    Ah, monochrome, cue introspective reflection. What I intend to change is the lingering fascination with guns as well designed machinery exerting power at a distance and commanding attention. I have almost no personal experience of guns, yet this perception has been created by countless images and films portraying guns as sexy.

    Now I try to imagine a gun as an axe handle with nails in it. Something brutal and unlovely. James Bond sure looks different holding it.
