Stand By Your Guns

Stand By Your Guns simultaneously glorifies and vilifies the handgun, masquerading as a children's fun centre. Visitors can watch gun-TV, play games, visit Charlton Heston via webcam in his rest home (when available), colour pictures of guns, and print out their own slogans onto iron-on fabric for t-shirts. >Stand By Your Guns is a 2004 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc., for its Turbulence web site. This project was made possible by a grant from the Jerome Foundation. It has been featured at BananaRAM 2004 in Ancona Italy; New Forms Festival in Vancouver, BC; Festival Internacional de Arte Electronico 404 in Rosario, Argentina; The Sundance Online Film Festival in Park City, Utah; Seoul Net festival 2005; and was awarded the prize for game art in the web art category at http://www.thirdplacegallery.org
