She has more guns and weapons than any private individual — including tons of decommissioned nuclear weapons. The Peace Angels Project creates public monuments to peace from some of the most destructive materials ever created by humankind. Directed/Edited by Jason Moore, with special thanks to Brooklyn College.

Since 1992, contemporary American artist Lin Evola has been using her art as a platform to promote peace. Actuating the “swords to plowshares” paradigm, citizens are engaged as weapons are collected through law enforcement and transformed from instruments of death into 64-foot monuments to peace.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
