1. “AKA Peace”
Commissioned art by Peace One Day, Symondson’s ambitious project known as AKA Peace presents the works of 23 well-known artists including Antony Gormley, Damien Hirst, Tim Noble and Sue Webster, and Nancy Fouts. The collaborative effort displays each artist’s reinterpretation of the rifle that is so often the epitome of war. While some chose to adorn the gun with candy-colored stones and butterflies, others places large bullets holes all over their rifle. The artists all took varied approaches to signify their own messages.
