"Shots Fired" displays real-time gun violence throughout the US as it's reported. When an incident occurs, one of the vanes rotates in the direction of where it happened and displays the details. On average, the vanes move every 3-5 minutes.

BREAKFAST is a new media artist collective whose work explores social issues through real-time data visualized through kinetic technological mediums of their own design. BREAKFAST was also a key part in conceiving of the Creative for Biden's FOR campaign.

Biden’s Plan

Joe Biden knows that gun violence is a public health epidemic. Almost 40,000 people die as a result of firearm injuries every year in the United States, and many more are wounded. Some of these deaths and injuries are the result of mass shootings that make national headlines. Others are the result of daily acts of gun violence or suicides that may not make national headlines, but are just as devastating to the families and communities left behind.

Joe Biden has taken on the National Rifle Association (NRA) on the national stage and won – twice. In 1993, he shepherded through Congress the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, which established the background check system that has since kept more than 3 million firearms out of dangerous hands. In 1994, Biden – along with Senator Dianne Feinstein – secured the passage of 10-year bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. As president, Joe Biden will defeat the NRA again.
