Part of a series exploring gun violence and fetishism in America. These are the three guns that were used to assassinate Malcolm X. The images are printed with archival ink onto pages of books about Malcolm X. The books are then cut up, pages are turned on their sides and ordered to reform the image of the gun using the edges of the pages.
