Artist Asif Farooq fashions these replicas of guns from cardboard by hand. From Wonderland Magazine:
What triggered your interest in weapons?
My interest in guns is in the idea of visual representation as personal metaphor. As a tool for communication – which is often the intended function of actual guns – they’re universally recognized. So, much as a writer uses words, or a musician uses notes, I use guns to communicate. To me they are just as interesting as any other inanimate object, but of course you can only say so much with bowls of fruit.
