GhostGun, a Powerful Art Installation on Governors Island Reflecting the Nation's 372 Mass Shootings in 2015

On Governors Island this September, #GhostGun is an art installation from Manhattan-based film editor and videographer Ethan Minsker that features 372 white guns hanging in a room, free to sway this way and that.

Memorializing the victims of mass shootings in America. According to the Tracker’s data, which defines a mass shooting as an incident in which at least four people are killed or wounded, there were 372 mass shootings in the U.S. in 2015, killing 475 and wounding 1,870. #GhostGun is a installation of 372 guns made of paper that dangle from fishing line. These guns move with the whim of a slight breeze, pointing in all directions reflecting the randomness of being targeted and killed.

Check out the installation from 11am to 5pm every weekend in September on Governors Island, at 404 in the Colonels Row.
