Examination of Violence


Artists Daniel Ting Chong & Jordan Metcalf have teamed up for a thought-provoking project. Entitled “Fear.Less,” the exhibit examines the weapons used by both law enforcement and criminals in South Africa. By enlarging the objects and creating them out of wood, the artists hope for viewers to re-examine the everyday place and use of these items. The exhibit also hopes to show how society views our obsession with violence and paranoia and asks us to think about how these objects affect the crime rates in South Africa.
