There are currently about 64 million people displaced, because of war. It is thought, that about 50% of the number, are children. “The world is over-armed and peace is under-funded… United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stated: "The end of the cold war has led the world to expect a massive peace dividend. Yet, there are over 20,000 nuclear weapons around the world. Many of them are still on hair-trigger alert, threatening our own survival.” The Telegraph reported in 2016, that $1.570.000.000.000 was spent on military arms within that year. In the relation to 157 trillion Dollars, the approved budget for UN Peacekeeping operations for the fiscal year 1 July 2016-30 June 2017, is $7.87 billion. Color_field(s) consists of images of plywood_conjuncts, that can be disassembled, if need be and then again reassembled. They represent the body in the margin, that needs to be able to move if need be, live in 'boxes' and within the severe conditions, continue with live. We say we record history, in order to remember not to repeat our mistakes. One would think, that after Hiroshima, there will not be another nuclear bomb...and here we are...not only budgeting for war, but debating which head of state will be willing to push the button of another nuclear head...if need be...? Why is there even "a button" that can be considered to be pushed or not...?

The final image is printed on photographic paper, backed by aluminium di-bond.
