This hand-crafted globe is strewn with close to 200 buttons. Each button, along with its location on the globe, represent 1 war that has occurred since WW1, often referred to as ‘The War to End All Wars’. The creation of this work was an act of contemplation on its title. I hope that the viewer can also contemplate this inappropriate nick-name when they encounter the work.
Time consuming hand felting methods were used in its creation, when using thousands of jabs of the felting needle to create the work, I imagined the piercing gunshots from those wars.
