Lockers is an interactive art installation that targets the problem of gun violence in schools in the 21st century. It is composed of 226 small wooden lockers. Each is dedicated to a person and has a LED backlit black and white abstract picture and stenciled information (name, age at death, school of death, and personal information like some of their interests). Lockers is honoring the memories of the lives that were unjustly taken, sending the message that gun violence in schools occurs too often and takes too many innocent lives.The goal is to reach gun rights supporters in the hope that when they see these victims as actual people who had incredible potential, and not just as another statistic, they will be inspired to push for stricter gun control laws. As viewers you can go up and open each locker and discover the story of a life that is no longer with us and have time to reflect on the effects of gun violence.
