To be honest, I can’t stand guns, especially after some idiot killed a buddy of mine with one. That fool was eventually slapped on the hand with manslaughter.
Created during residency at Arizona’s Sculpture Space, the work is a reaction to gun violence.
As for the rest of Mosher’s bio, I’m feeling lazy. Fuck it, I’ll borrow lines from his web page.
“Boston native Matthew Mosher is an intermedia artist and mixed methods research professor who creates embodied experiential systems. He received his BFA in Furniture Design from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2006 and his MFA in Intermedia from Arizona State University in 2012. While in Phoenix, Arizona he co-founded the non-profit [nueBOX] residency program for emerging performance and installation artists. Currently, he is an assistant professor of digital media specializing in interaction design at the University of Central Florida. Mosher exhibits his work across the United States, and internationally in India, China, and the Netherlands. His research is published in the ACM Computer-Human Interaction, Tangible Embodied Interaction, and New Interfaces for Musical Expression conference proceedings. His public installations, dynamic performances, and experiential systems bridge the physical and digital worlds by mixing new media, sensing technology, relational aesthetics, computer programming, collaborative practice, and traditional sculpture processes. When taking a break from teaching and research, he enjoys observational astronomy, dispersed camping, and jewelry design.”
With my camera phone, I photographed the plaster displays at Avalon Island. The plasters are originally white. Yet, the lightening changed some of my pics to an orange color. When I attempted changing some pics to black and white, I wasn’t too happen with them. So, I left them alone.
