Members of the Serbian Counter-terrorism battalion Sokolovi (Falcon) with H&K MP5’s. The MP5 has been around for over 40 years but continues to see widespread use among law enforcement, military and security services around the world. To some degree it has been replaced by newer designs such as the H&K UMP and MP7, as well as the FN P90.

Point & Shoot is created by MA student Ian Ferguson of the Design Products Department at the Royal College of Art in London. Point & Shoot is concerned with the question of what a weapon really is. A weapon is more than the object itself; it is also the moment when a force of a desire flows through an object and effects an action. It is as much the decision to use an object as a weapon as it is the object itself.
Point & Shoot is intended as an attachment for a gun which captures an image of the target and person firing the gun each time the trigger is pulled. The project constructs an objective history of violence, recording not only the most dire uses of the weapon but also its most banal. It enables us to answer the question “What really happened?” and leaves us asking “What does it mean?”
