“Designer Gas Masks

We are in a state of perpetual war – with ourselves and with the eco-system that sustains us. Perpetual war breeds perpetual fear. In this present context, our fear stems from our extreme desire for authenticity and and manifests itself in our collectively insatiable culture of consumption

Deep down, we are afraid we may never be satisfied.
An extending branded myths and icons feed this fear.
Designer Gask Masks is an attempt to visualise this state of mind
Because it is only first by acknowledging
then challenging that we will be able to breathe a little easier.”

I know this is art, for commentary’s sake.. and I love it for that.

I can kinda understand the branded mobile phones, tennis rackets and bicycles, but can you imagine if these gas masks were to really materialise and go on sale?!
