Gun Violence

Yujia Gu is a third year graphic design MFA student. Gu attended school in China for graphic design and ended up coming to the US to finish her education. Gu’s work explores cultural differences.

Yujia Gu used photography, glass, and projection in order to show the amount of gun violence in the US. She compared the rate of gun violence in America to the rate of gun violence in other countries to show how much higher ours was, which was eye opening. I was shocked at how straight forward this exhibit was. As soon as you walk in, you see all this evidence of violence. It gives you a lot to think about, so I would like to thank Yujia Gu for this crazy wonderful exhibit.
