[about]

at the time of this installation's design, 288 mass shootings have reportedly occurred so far in the united states during 2015.

state[s] of panic analyzes and opens dialogue regarding the reasons for this present situation in america, the various perspectives surrounding it, as well as its origins and possible solutions.

presented in this installation are 288 geometric parts – one for each mass shooting in america in 2015. in grid form the pieces collectively complete a puzzle of the u.s. using ink, graphite, gunpowder, wood, plexiglass, metal bolts and shooting targets.

state[s] of panic was realized as part of the die ohnmacht exhibition series at galerie eigenheim, in weimar, germany.
