Sick!: Camping Tent That Looks Like Human Skin & Guts
This is the blood and guts camping tent designed by artist Andrea Hasler. It's made out of wax-covered fiberglass (try carrying that in your backpack!) and doesn't look that comfortable to sleep in. Of course, if it's cold and raining out anything is better than getting eaten by wolves. Screw it, let's go home and make s'mores in the microwave. Per the artist:
It's almost like I am taking the fabric of the tent, the sort of the nylon element of the tent, and I make the fabric, this skin layer as sort of the container for emotion, or sort of the container to hold emotion, as in the skin holding emotion.
Wait -- was that supposed to be about the blood and guts tent? Man, I remember back in the day when somebody could make a blood and guts tent and it didn't have to mean anything. It was just gross looking and that was that. This is exactly why we need time machines.
Keep going for a couple closeups.
Thanks to BBQ, who wants to camp in a treehouse. Sames! But like, FOREVER.
