War ribbons are military pins of a uniform size and shape, made of stripes of fabric in coded colors, like colorful signs of an endless continuality of conflict.
I Deconstructed Bars, I separated the stripes and cast parts of color, texture and pin bases. A modular arrangement of the various parts allows wearers to personalize the pins, with different combinations telling different stories. With the deconstruction of war and conflict symbols, the building of hope and peace are made possible.
