Take Me Out To The Ballgame

Here is a statement about the time we live in. The folks at Junkfunnel have created the Suspicious Looking Device. This item has no other purpose than to look as suspicious as possible.

I love the irony of this piece. Just imagine taking this to an airport, mall, or the ballgame. It's a surefire way to get yourself in jail. But it's also a testament to the concerns and fears of our society. Chances are you'd get a "shoot/beat down first, ask questions later" type of response.

This belongs in an art gallery or museum of modern art, just as much as it belongs in a very public place. Perhaps there should be a project with hidden cameras to gauge the response to this item from the public and security personnel. Hmmm...
