If you want peace – prepare for war. Yeah, hard to say whether this is true. But facts – it is a stubborn thing: in recent years artists have been increasingly turn to this subject, to draw inspiration from it. So designers are actively “creative” about it. And object for their warlike art experiments could provide even a gas mask. Not so long ago we told you about an unusual student project - unexpected collection of personal protective equipment “haute couture”. And today – a new idea for similar reasons. Another designer, another concept, another design. And what better – it’s only you to judge.
His project of “glamorous” masks have presented designer Diddo. Having built a successful career in the field commercially viable design (the guy worked for a big company), Diddo decided to drop everything and completely change his creative vector. As a result, young man focused on conceptual art. However, experience in big business is not forgotten, and gave good bonuses: artist ever learned the mechanism of “inserting” the wrong head right ideas. That he tries to use.
A collection of designer gas masks – a kind of manifesto of modern consumer society. According to the vision of Diddo, today we are in a state of permanent war – with ourselves, with others, with the ecosystem. Eternal war generates perpetual fear. And somehow to forget, at least briefly to gain a sense of security and peace of mind, a man tries to hide under the labels of expensive brands, and buy, buy, buy.
In the heart of everyone living fear that the consumer hunger will never be appeased. A growing number of all the fashion brands and expensive collection only fueling the nascent phobia. So that the collection of expensive luxury gas masks – just an attempt to visualize this fear. And at the same time and the desire to explore the process of how a simple thing becomes a symbol and an object of consumer desire.
