“1H” is a workshop and intervention piece for public space. In a one day workshop a group of participants builds paper weapon models extracted from the online computer game “World of Warcraft”. Oversized axes, swords and other archaic weapons are recreated in the exact 3D shape in physical space. Each participant builds his favorite one handed (1H) weapon from large inkjet plotts. In the public intervention the actor/participant carries the weapon model without ‘using’ it. The axe / sword becomes part of every day life in public space while taking the metro or going to a store.
