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.
