"Home is usually recognised as a safe place. The installation shows the home in the realm of gun culture to examine
the sense of unease and paranoia that society now feels everyday," Wise said. "Society seems caught up with the
need to find an enemy, and the gun club simulator, training people against pretend enemies, demonstrates this
perfectly. "My aim is to encourage visitors to the exhibition to 'act out' fantasy scenarios," Wise added. (from press

Catalogue essay

A brief review of the show at Art and Mayhem:
An installation by artist Gianni Wise that places gun culture within the context of everyday living, literally,
Gianni has built the interior of a home in a gallery space. Scenario House 's timing is particularly relevant
given the events currently unfolding in the Middle East .
