After the mass shooting in October 2015 at Umqua Community College in Oregon, I was heartbroken and weary of hearing about yet another shooting in our country. I was spurred to find a way to represent visually the sheer number of victims of gun violence in the U.S. I wanted to see what 92 looked like. Every day.
For 200 days--every day from October 5th, 2015 through April 21st, 2016--I created a design using 92 carefully folded, cut, and glued black triangles, representing each of the 92 Americans killed every day. Each day, I posted one of these designs on Facebook and Instagram (@92Americans.Everyday). 200 days. Some 18,400 lives lost. You can see the entire collection at www.92americans-everyday.com.
While I am keeping the original 200 designs together as a collection, I have made a few authentic, limited-edition duplicates which are available for sale. If you are interested in one of the designs below, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
