IMPENETRABLE  MECHANIZED SCULPTURE
IRA SHERMAN
The Injector
_______________________________________________________________________________
I interviewed 5 rape victims.  I would ask, “What
messages would you like me to convey in the
sculptures I plan to create?"  Each victim gave me
a list of ideas they would like to express.  Two  
viewpoints were common with all rape victims,  
female or male.  The desire to identify and
capture the rapist was universal.  “THE
INJECTOR” device uses pneumatically powered
hypodermic syringes to simultaneously inject
tattoo dye and a powerful sedative into the
attacker.  The rapist drops in his tracks and is
permanently identified making for easy
apprehension.
