When Hot Glass & Gunpowder Mix...

From VCU - Kristoff Kamrath creates a hot-shop portrait of Neda using the materials found on every college campus - gunpowder.

I think the imagery and title refer to the death of Neda Agha-Soltan - a bystander whose murder drew international attention after she was killed during the 2009 Iranian election protests. The gunshot that took her life, as well as her last words : "I'm burning, I'm burning!" make this a powerful piece.

Thanks to Superpostition for the link!
