When Hot Glass & Gunpowder Mix…

>From VCU – Kristoff Kamrath creates a hot-shop portrait of Neda using the materials found on every college campus – gunpowder.


I think the imagery and title refer to the death of Neda Agha-Soltan – a bystander whose murder drew international attention after she was killed during the 2009 Iranian election protests. The gunshot that took her life, as well as her last words : “I’m burning, I’m burning!” make this a powerful piece.

Thanks to Superpostition for the link!
