Making art with bullets

bullet2.jpg

Since it's 2012 and we cynically assume that we've seen it all, artists are forced to utilise unlikely instruments in their work. You know, so we stay awake and that.

Take Deborah Bay who was fascinated by the use of weapons in the US and the odd beauty of their output so created this set of shots, titled "The Big Bang".

To get the desired effect, she photographed sheets of glass that were shot by cops in Houston. As you can see from the images, her work gives bullets and their impact a surreal edge.

We're pretty sure there's some sort of joke to be made about shooting shots but we're not going to make it/can't think of one.
