Name/Title
Etching of a human figure on paper printed with the Defense Department organization chart. The source for the chart is given as the "U.S. Organization Manual 1983/84". The human figure huddles into itself, holding a baby to its chest in a tight embrace. Morris uses the combination of this human figure with the Defense Department chart to explore the concept of humanity. He believes that for someone to be capable of pulling a trigger, they must have lost their humanity and forgotten the love that exists between parent and child.
