About the piece

“Weapon of Protest” is an augmented Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) Light gun so that when triggered, instead of shooting a screen or game, the NES gun sends an email to the National Rifle Association (NRA) protesting current gun laws in the United States. The project takes the shape of a Nintendo Zapper that was used in the 1980s video game system that served as a precursor to today’s modern or more violent / graphic FPS (First Person Shooter) game titles such as Overwatch, Fortnite, Call of Duty, Destiny, Counter-Strike, and others. The project also critically examines the conservative position and argument that there is a correlation between video game violence and mass shootings / shooters. This analogy was created as a false justification for failed education and mental health support facilities across the US that are unable to heal and help troubled individuals.
