The Big Bang was a contend-um to the Hello Neighbour! show at Pith Gallery Calgary. As part of this pioneer-inspired installation, I created a working shotgun based on a shotgun shell that I found in the garage that I was working in during the show. The shotgun represented the universe during the big bang, creating an explosion of elements, and the result was an always shifting and changing pattern that would be almost impossible to replicate. The result was captured on a piece of grid paper that was in the range of the shotgun test.
