Machine Gun Sculptures Built From Deconstructed Typewriters by Artist Ravi Zupa

Zupa3Zupa7

A play on the mightiness of words over weapons, Colorado-based artist Ravi Zupa’s series of machine gun sculptures are made from staplers and typewriters picked up at estate and garage sales. After careful disassembly, typewriter rollers become barrels with stapler gun triggers and grips as Zupa uses illustrations from old books and gun almanacs to create these minutely detailed replicas. More images from “Mightier Than” below.

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
