Flash Bang

Flash Bang is a raised flower vase designed to mimic the form of a flash bang grenade; the type of grenade used often by police against protesters. These weapons are used to blind, deafen and "accidentally" maim protesters and are a symbol of this country's militarized police force. Thus, just as citizens of Palestine have used empty tear gas canisters as flower pots, I intend to turn this symbol of violence on its head by making this flash bang into a flower vase.

Copper, inert flash bang grenade parts, flower
