In Pétalas (Petals), the author suggests a reflection on fetishism around firearms when mixing images of projectiles, triggered expansive bullets and texts that refer to a glossary of violence and industry/culture, the paper. The editing was made from 67 images extracted from the Internet through the search tool Google. The words used as search key and other recurring terms were inserted in the book forming a kind of vocabulary of the warworld and the violence caused by the use of such artifacts. When leafing through the book, the traces of strong political and social criticism add layers of complexity and meanings to the publication.
