Tear x Scape / Terrorscape touches on weapons of warfare used on the landscape globally.
Tear gas was first used in World War I in chemical warfare. In 1925, the Geneva Convention categorized tear gas as a chemical warfare agent and banned its use during wartime. But its use by police in the U.S. is still legal.
Today, tear gas is the most commonly used form of what's known in law-enforcement jargon as “less-lethal” force. Journalists file news stories of tear-gas deployment so regularly that pictures of smoke-filled streets have come to feel like stock photography—a theatrical backdrop of protest.
