Alright everyone, I may have to scrap this idea and go back to the drawing board. I was talking via email w/ my ex-art partner and he said the social commentary of pointing out how we wncourage violence in children but the are shocked when they grow up to be killer is passe, and case & point is that good ol' michael moore's film Bowling for Colimbine.
Well, damn!
So anyone got any ideas on how to take something like TV sets or toys guns, and revamp my project into a commentary on how to us americans War/terrorism is and always has been just something we see on TV?

this might be a little literal, but you could take  a hollowed out tv, put in a diarama of Green Army Guys (tm) and either spatter it with blood*, have blood dripping down from the screen, or fill the bottom 2" or so with blood (so the screen is holding it back from us).

Or maybe engineer some kind of picture in picture/split screen thing where there's news footage in one and fake hollywood war movie stuff (rambo?) in the other, emphasizing how on the tv, both are the same.

you could use toy guns as 'aerials'

*blood==red paint, obviously

sorry bout the bush stuff,

it's a great idea

try painting the guns a metallic grey/steel color and give the an aged look with some black drybrushing
