JOAQUIN OLIVER

CHANGE THE REF

I can barely begin to imagine how these parents feel after the loss of their son in a school shooting in Parkland, Florida more than one year ago.

Manuel Oliver, Joaquín’s father, has put all forth all his effort to keep his son’s memory alive and to advocate for gun reform.

Take a look!!

Gun reform organization Change The Ref is raising awareness about 3D-printed guns with 3D printing technology of its own – a 3D-printed sculpture the group is calling “the first 3D activist” in a campaign created in collaboration with the agency Alma.

The sculpture is modeled after Joaquín Oliver, Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting victim and son of Change The Ref founders Manuel and Patricia Oliver.

Entitled “Guac is Back,” the campaign is centered around a 3D sculpture of Joaquín holding a bouquet of flowers, in tribute to the Valentine’s Day gift for his girlfriend he was holding when he died.

The statue of Joaquín is wearing a pin which, when scanned with a smartphone, directs viewers to a website collecting signatures for a petition demanding action against 3D-printed guns and encourages visitors to register to vote.

An emotional video features Manuel Oliver explaining that his family fled gun violence in Venezuela to settle in the U.S. and that Joaquin himself was an activist.

THE LAST LOCKDOWN

THE SAD REALITY COMES THROUGH LOUD AND CLEAR

I have no words.

The sculpture explains it all even if you don’t read the article below.

Father Of Parkland Shooting Victim Sculpts Haunting Image Of Child Hiding Under Desk
Manuel Oliver created “The Last Lockdown” partially using 3D printing

Artist Manuel Oliver, who lost his 17-year-old son Joaquin during the February shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, has created a striking sculpture depicting a child hiding under a desk to signify when a school is on lockdown.
The statue is one of 10 being shown across the country during voter registration drives, specifically in congressional districts where politicians back the gun lobby. The title of the project is “The Last Lockdown.”

The figures were created using 3D printers, an intentional reference to the debate over guns potentially being 3D printed.

The desks are real school desks.  “We want you to feel unsettled,” the project’s co-creator Sean Leonard said. 

Oliver and Leonard teamed up with Giffords, the gun reform group founded by former congresswoman Gabby Giffords.

Giffords is a mass shooting victim herself, being left partially paralyzed after a lone gunman opened fire at a meet-and-greet in Tucson, Arizona, in 2011.
