This three part work is based on the Browning m1919 machine gun. The left panel is a drawing showing the components of the weapon presented to subvert the fetishism of the 'gun as machine'. The second  panel is a text which outlines some of the operational procedures in the style of a dramatic monologue made famous by poet Robert Browning. The right panel is a list of the variant numbers of the weapon presented in a rhythmic staccato way to mimic the sound of the gun
