The New York duo "Uniform" has just published a disturbing take on mass shootings in the United States. Their latest video "The Killing of America" uses a gloomy map of the U.S. with red dots that light up as the music plays, each representing one mass shooting during the last year alone.
Uniform issued a press release about the project:
Released to a limited audience in 1982, Leonard Schrader and Sheldon Renan’s documentary The Killing of America served to paint a stark portrait about the realities of gun violence in the United States at that time.
In the 35 years since the film’s inception, the statistics regarding firearm deaths in this country have not improved. Highly influenced by Isao Hashimoto’s piece on nuclear weapons titled “1945 - 1998,” our video intends to present basic figures surrounding a complicated subject. We do not wish to moralize and we offer no answers. Instead, we ask the viewer to use this data as an aid towards formulating their own conclusions.
