“Bomb Reform”, concerns war. It fuses a graffitied wall into an interior space where a disarrayed line of soldiers persuades a civilian to push The Bomb Button as a line of activists shout at him not to. In a Judas stance, a soldier whispers in the civilian’s ear. However, the betrayal implied here is that of oneself, as the other figure addressing him is dressed as a priest. Similarly, the harangue of an activist cribs from Roman history painting. The civilian hesitates, looking for higher direction. His face is illuminated as though by a blast. Reflecting the difficulty of weighing action and activism, it shows a dualistic environment of destruction and sanctuary. Its symbolism illustrates how one’s rash action may destroy one’s environment. Also implied is the value of experiencing a higher consciousness away from the turmoil of society while acting within it.
