Tamir Rice was only 12 years old when he was tragically killed for playing with a toy gun at an outdoor park in Ohio. The idea of a 12 year old being a threat sat with me for some time as I vividly remembered playing with toy guns of my own as a child. He was 12, is an assessment of this act. As innocent as the combo of a 12 year old with a toy gun may be, it was ultimately the reason why he lost his life. Within this piece, my hope is to re-enact the use of a toy gun to allow the viewer an opportunity to grapple with the idea of what is "threatening" versus what isn't.
