Artist shares stories of Bronx gun violence through projected photosPosted: Updated:
Over 100 pictures will be projected on the side of the Morrisania Air Rights building Saturday night to share the stories of those affected by gun violence in the Bronx.
The project is called "Tracing the Bullet: A Story of Community and Gun Violence" and it was created by artist Kate Browne.
For the last three years, the New York-based artist has pursued residents of three New York City Housing Authority developments: Andrew Jackson Houses, Melrose Houses, and Morrisania Air Rights.
She interviewed not only the family members of victims but also the trauma surgeons, EMTs, funeral directors and more.
About 150 people throughout the three NYCHA complexes shared their own stories.
Photographer Eric Etheridge took portraits of the interviewees, which will be projected.
Across the globe, Browne has created cocoon sculptures at sites with traumatic histories. The Bronx's cocoon, which was up for one night, was on the basketball court at Jackson Houses.
The portraits will be projected from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. on the corner of Morris and Park avenues.
