Damage is the title of Michael Murphy’s topical installation made from 1,200 suspended black ping pong balls. Viewed from multiple angles, it just looks like a random pattern of floating spheres, but when seen from the proper perspective it depicts a side view of an assault rifle. The physical arrangement of the project is meant to comment that perspective plays a large role in the matter.
Murphy states: “Guns are fetishized in the U.S. Many, many Americans love guns. I’m creating a giant gun. I just want people to keep talking about guns [and] why we should have guns. Communication is necessary because I don’t see any sort of solution being proposed.”
The installation is on display at AVA in Tennessee until June 29th.

I’ve had a love-hate relationship with McDonald’s since I can remember. During high school I even worked part-time for the Golden Arches to fund my passion for skateboarding and photography (True story: I made employee of the month three times.). Not many things can come close to the sheer deliciousness of a burger carefully crafted with your own two hands with meat straight off the grill, and packed only with the freshest of ingredients along with buns still steaming hot from the toaster. Add to that a side of scorching hot crispy fries and the result is a gastrological orgasm of epic proportions.
Whether you love it, hate it, or hate to love it, you can’t argue the fact that the range of McDonald’s customers is as varied as they come. The rich eat side by side with the poor, while senior citizens share lunch with their grandchildren. This wide spectrum of customers is the subject of photographer, Nolan Conway’s new series of images, The People You Meet at McDonald’s. He visited nearly 150 restaurants in 22 States and shot some 180 patrons.
