Iron Bunnies Hop

Recently I met a soldier who is a member of the special sniper unit of the International Criminal Court here in The Netherlands. Questioning the price for my freedom I accepted his offer to join him at the indoor shooting range. I was curious about how I’d deal with shooting with a rifle and a handgun. I was surprised to experience and enjoy the soberness of a physical workout and the immense respect I felt for the bullet, not the gun. 

Drawing the parts of an up to its items dismantled revolver with the trigger and the bold looking like bunnies I visualise my confrontation and inner observations during my encounter with the bullet and the gun. By transferring the drawings and text into carefully chosen recycled news prints I put my personal encounter into the context of current threads of social unrest, terrorist attacks and jingoism.
