This proposal that I called ‘bullet lights’ is reversing the meaning
and experience of the ‘bullet hole wallpaper’ at diverse locations in
the city. Introducing unexpected poetic moments of beauty. Beauty,
ambivalently mixed with the physical testimonies of violence. The
project doesn’t want to make a point it just invites people to look at
things differently. Seeing things from more than one perspective is the
starting point for empathy.
How do we as an international community enlighten ourselves (pun intended) and take the bullet holes in our global policies and military actions to produce something beautiful and peaceful? Sometimes life mimicking art is and would be a very good thing.
