Ivan Snauwaert - Belgium

“My project starts with a biblical quote “swords reforged into plough shares”, or in other words take something deadly, and make a useful object which serves society.

I interpreted the quote in a somewhat modern manner.

Instead of a sword, I have used a spent shell case from the great war( I find these shells frequently in my area, as I live very close to the frontline from the great war).

And instead of a plough share, a part of the shell case is transformed into a brick layers trowel, to aid the reconstruction of society, and so negative becomes positive.”
