Scattered Box: Clustered Bomblets UXO Laos 270 million Dropped, 2020
Resin, wood, reflective sheet
34" x 24" x 5"


Each of the bomblets was made by hand and includes laser engraved numbers and text. The plastic bomblets were made to be colorful and toy-like in order to not only raise awareness but also comment on the many young victims that continue to be maimed or killed by unexploded ordnance (UXO) yearly in the beautiful landscape of Laos. This is an ongoing body of work.
