Choose your Bullets featured at MAD's "New Territories" Catalogue
Choose your Bullets has been featured at the book New Territories: Laboratories for Design, Craft and Art in Latin America by the Museum of Arts and Design in New York.
"Artists and designers in Latin America have questioned the navigation of personal and civic space by addressing the theme of violence in contemporary society. At times, the expression is almost uncomfortably ironic, as in Jorge Diego Etienne’s gun-barrel pencil holder Choose Your Bullets, which the designer describes as “[responding] to the current situation in Mexico, where violence seems to have taken over our life.” This seemingly innocuous desk accessory is sculpted out of aluminum by artisans in Monterrey, Mexico, and each piece is engraved with a serial number. Etienne’s project can be seen as an attempt to co-opt and thus nullify the effects of guns. "
