    In your FACE, grass.

    If you want to smell fresh grass, turn off your computer, get off your fat arse and mow the damn lawn.

    I can’t help but find it slightly disturbing. Like, “You seem agitated, citizen: two hours in the mandatory relaxation helmet!”

    The emperor is totally nude, you guys, and this is the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen.

    I thought this was another TSA story…

    How about one with an alfalfa/clover/mustard/radish blend? That would be much sweeter and you could eat it after!

    This is dumb. I mean really dumb. Yet I’m glad it exists for some reason.

    This is what getting your face rubbed in the dirt as a kid, followed by four years of art school, will get you.

    Forced to wheeze.

    Does it come with a mega-dose of Claritan?

    With my allergies – that thing would kill me.

    That’s how the next saw movie will look like when we will have Sminema (that is, smell-enabled movies).cinema

    Do you have to mow your face every week?

    From the website:

    The device defines also a sensory territory constructed by the rhytm of the breath, which is diffused from the headphones with a 1.5 sec. delay.

    The work plays with the Deleuzian notion of ritornell, and about the quality of sound to define a territory. The space defined by the sound of breathing is in a state of costant imbalance between the physical act and its sensory perception and traces an unstable relationship with the intimate environment the garment reproduces.

    That is some seriously pretentious claptrap.

    The concepts explored here interest me, but I have to agree that’s pretty pretentious.

    I’d rather not have my face shoved into something that has been on a lot of other peoples’ faces, thank you very much.

    Rule 34 applies I think, no?

  17. PaulR says:

    I mean, instead of this, er, (With apologies to Bruce Sterling) Augmented Reality device, you could, y’know, just go outside, eh.

    Like, somewhere you can see more than 17 starts at night.

  18. Kosmoid says:

    I think this is dehumanizing, but that’s only my opinion.

    I keep reading ‘Fart Mask forces you to smell…..’

    hahaha, they have no idea how much pesticides are applied to sod at the “factory”…

    My initial reaction to the picture was:

    “god, I hope this is not some terrible play on ‘carpet muncher.’”

    My reaction after reading the article is “I hope that’s not from my neighbor’s lawn. He has a huge black Labrador…”

    They should team up with this guy.

    Hey, you lawn get off my face!

    In other news, the outrage against conceptual art is tragicomic as always.

    • blueelm says:

      LOL. Your comment resonates with me. I was an art major, and my work was conceptual. Before I walked away from the art world… for being too old fashioned and constrictive (not the best area for what I was trying to be/do.)

      But honestly, I think this is kind of bland conceptual art if it’s taken at at face value. I actually like the crude design though, and the fact that this seems like some kind of plausible spa treatment in annoying hipsterland.

    Sad. Another lost Super Bowl bet…
