Sculptor Federico Uribe is known for his creative style in transforming everyday objects into art - from colorful shoelaces and pencils to electric cables and pins. His latest medium is bullet shells, which the Colombian-born artist uses as a statement of humans' ability to turn destruction and death into peace and beauty. That's what we can read through his new collection, now on display at Adelson Galleries in New York. VOA's Faiza Elmasry has more. Faith Lapidus narrates.
