a creative approach to the devastation of war

During the Vietnam war, the US dropped some 2m tonnes of ordnance on Laos – an average of one B-52 bomb load every eight minutes – making it the most bombed country in history. It’s still one of south-east Asia’s poorest countries, but this project takes a creative approach to the devastation of war by turning bomb metal into spoons and bracelets. Brooklyn-based Article 22 has teamed up with British filmmaker Sam Rowland to make a series of films about the project, and you can help fund it. You can donate anything from $1, but if you donate over $25 you’ll receive one of the unique bracelets.
