Gun Study in NEO

This is a plastic water pistol I found in the park.   Looked like the lawnmower ran over it. 

What was in the head of the designer...was it molded in China...did a parent buy it for their kid...

Pretty sophisticated color scheme.   

So I laid the broken pieces out on a white matt for this study.

  At first glance, I thought your photo resembled an abstract water color.  Cool photo. 

The layers of design and manufacturing that went into this "toy" are remarkable to consider.  After visiting the IT Frary exhibit--Frary was a designer--I can see that we have really diverted from designing things that matter.  

Will we have a nostalgia for all things plastic in our youth? I doubt it.  They will also not hold up.  Still a cool photo, though :)
