fresh from the beast.






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

Deep down, we are afraid we may never be satisfied. An expanding archive
of branded myths and icons feeds this fear. Designer Gas Masks is an attempt
to visualize this state of mind. Because it is only by first acknowledging and
then challenging fear that we will all be able to breathe a little easier
.

The masks are currently made for gallery purposes only.

Tried by 12- The East Flatbush Project (zshare)

Peace & Love.
