Considers the relationship between trade and conflict in a global context.
Taking a decommissioned AK-47 that has seen active service, as its subject, Symondson first covers it with burnt dollar bills, suggesting dirt and fumes, a toxic fuel that powers this relationship Symondson then swaps out the AK-47’s bullets for commodities, each commodity coming from an area of conflict where the AK-47 is also prevalent.
This tactic fails to neutralise the weapon, instead it seems to work to signal the potency and latent power of each commodity. There is also a strongly
implied inter-relationship between commodity and gun, both sustaining and both compromising the other in a never ending spiral.
It asks the viewer to contemplate how closely bound one is to the other, and perhaps by extension how closely we might be implicated.
