Dad’s Gift

For this installation, I built a one-person theater with a small screen at the far end and a table and seat up front. The video of me cleaning the gun that my father gave me is intentionally long and slow-paced. The purpose being to allow the viewer ample time to contemplate the gun, laying on the table before them. No instructions were provided as to whether or not they could touch the gun and nor was it made clear that it was loaded.
