In a narrative that Kennedy envisions taking place 400 years in the future, invaders have come to Earth, and Brooklyn residents must defend themselves from the attackers with the everyday objects found around them.

Using street signs from historically significant Brooklyn neighborhoods, Kennedy has created machetes, shields, and swords that have meaning, and are remarkable works of art.

[Coby] Kennedy’s futuristic weapons collection is titled “In The Service Of A Villain”.

“A lot of the street signs are from places in Brooklyn that have history and weight, places that are losing that particular culture”.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
