FCB Chicago Creates Conversation About Gun Violence
Every day, 100 Americans are killed with guns and hundreds more are shot and injured. And the city of Chicago has one of the largest gun problems in America. The equivalent of a mass shooting occurs on a weekly basis, yet so many Chicagoans have become numb to the violence.
To start a conversation and move people to action across the country, the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence (ICHV), in partnership with FCB Chicago, recently unveiled an art exhibition called “Most Dangerous Street.” The installation showcases a week-by-week visualization of Chicago’s gun violence. As you walk through the exhibit, you are guided by emotional audio of victim families telling their stories, while surrounded by red laser beams. Each beam represents a victim of gun violence.
As you cross through the beams, details of that victim, including age, gender and time of incident, are projected on the alley wall. Imagine 38 lasers representing the actual 38 victims of gun violence in just one week in Chicago.
