Sick!: Camping Tent That Looks Like Human Skin & Guts

blood-and-guts-tent-1.jpg

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.

  • "Do you not trust the feelings of the flesh? Our biology yearns
    to join with yours. We welcome you to our mass, but you puzzle us. How can you choose cold metal over the splendor of flesh? But you fear
    us; We hear your thoughts, and they rage for your brothers you believe
    dead. But they are not, they sing in our symphony of life. We offer
    another chance to join us; if you choose to lie down with the machine,
    we will rend you apart, and put you separate from the joy of the mass."

    Many people are going to buy this to live out their vore/unbirth fetishes.
    I approve.

    And I thought they smelled bad... on the outside.

    This is one of the best things I've ever read.

    Why do artist's always have to have some ridiculous explanation for their work? The only description allowed should be "I worked hard at my craft and wanted to do a really good painting/sculpture." There shouldn't be more craft in the explanation than the actual product.

  • Rick_McRockock

    Because unfortunately many artists are self-indulgent pseudo-intellectual douchebags trying to convince people (and themselves) their work is relevant, rather than just producing a piece and letting it stand on its own merit, they shoehorn in some inane meaning to trick people into thinking they're the imbecile if they don't appreciate the artist's vision and "genius".

    the explanation is like the entire thing though. like barcode name guy said.

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    Part of the "art" consist in convincing peoplethat they should pay big amounts of money for something.

  • ODwanKenObi

    Nice meat curtains.

  • JJtoob

    To me, that looks like either a vagina, or a raw hamburger tent lol.

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    It would look much better deep fried. Maybe like a bacon tent?
