embodying ethics

You know how you sometimes stumble upon something and the only word that pops in your head is GENIUS? Yeah? Yeah. Well I present you THESE amazing creations that I so happened to stumbled upon which so happened to inflict such feelings of AW YEAH GENIUS. It's so incredible I want to pull out my hair. Just because that would really emphasize how incredible it is? Yeah.

I know what you're thinking. It's GENIUS. And if you're not thinking that... then you have major issues. HAH. Kidding. Sort of. But really, I'm so enthralled with the, for lack of better word, AMAZINGNESS behind this - the concept, the message, the construction, the execution, sighhhh. If only I had even a millionth of the creativity and talent behind producing such pieces. Also, if only I owned that hunter jacket because who cares if I don't need my jacket to turn into a ram? NOW ALL JACKETS I OWN WILL ONLY APPEAR TO BE A MINOR BLIMP OF COOL IN COMPARISON TO A JACKET THAT TURNS TO A RAM. Yes, that required Caps.

On a deeper note beyond why rams + jackets > normal jacket (not that that's not valid because it MOST CERTAINLY IS), the message in which Chhabra explores in his works is really phenomenal. I'm very attracted to the exploration of greater ideas and concepts through design; a garment is MORE than a garment, so to speak. As he describes on his website, he has begun to "focus on designs ability to ask carefully crafted question than just provide solution/ solve problem. My recent work question ethics and allow design to deal with more complex and darker emotions."

Check out more of Rohan Chhabra. Especially the videos.

Nice new banner. Yeah. I love the new banner. It makes me jealous about how good a drawer you are. Did you take art lessons or were you just born an artist?

at first i scrolled through it quickly and was slightly perplexed but upon closer examination, in noticed the ram first :) and it blew my mind to epically amazed proportions. converting everyday items into centres of thought-provokaction is genius!
