‘Harm Less’ Weapons Created With The Stems, Leaves & Petals of Plants

‘Harm Less’ Weapons Created With The Stems, Leaves & Petals of Plants:



Melbourne-based artist Sonia Rentsch—whom we have previously featured over here—has created a new series, entitled ‘Harm Less’, that will have you re-thinking your idea of weapons.



Using organic materials like the stems, petals and leaves of plants, Rentsch recreates dangerous weapons like guns and grenades—only now, they are completely harmless.



By juxtaposing the life-giving nature of flora against the destructive nature of modern weapons, Rentsch seeks to persuade the viewer to think about the fragility of life in an increasingly violent world.
