Carl McCrow has designed a new exhibit that urges viewers to think about our complex relationship with firearms. Around the world, gun violence has had a major impact on individuals and whole communities. McCrow urges viewers to think deeply about gun violence and the role of firearms in our lives.

McCrow's artwork is part of an exhibit called 'One Less Gun,' which is on display at London's 'Gallery@Oxo.' The artwork itself is made from guns and ammo, causing the viewer to think about the real impact of firearms. According to McCrow, the exhibit is not about whether guns are good or bad but about the role they play in our lives and in the media. As McCrow explains, "guns are a part of popular culture and are integral to many of our favourite games and films." By merging guns and popular culture, McCrow causes the viewer to think critically about our complex relationship with firearms.
