Five oversized kits, which contains miscellaneous equipment like rifle, ammunition and grenades. The lack of functionality and the unloaded white of the weapon parts, as well as the 1:1 scale emphasizes the absurd relationship between play and reality. The individual parts are removable and could be connected with each other. A 5-part photo series is documenting a playful versatility. The construction game is quite orderly and pre-structured, but gives space for individual thinking and different action sequences. Through the player's offensive a conclusion of the vulnerability of urban space is shown, which is viewed as a three dimensional game world.
