W&P Chords

I play with empty bullet shells to compose a rhythm. I use two approaches—ritual and game—to challenge the audience’s perceived meaning of the object. The sound created by bullet shells is reminiscent of the sound streaming water makes in nature, creating a conceptual contradiction in the viewer’s mind.
