A rifle/camera – weapons in the field of art.

America’s Finest

Lynn Hershman Leeson



The work directly combines guns and media – the installation is a “fabricated rifle”, a “photographic rifle”. The artist invites viewers to “play with guns” in the gallery, immediately punishing them for their curiosity. In an unnoticeable way, the installation captures the image of the viewer, and when they pull the trigger, they shoot themselves with the camera.
