反社会 |  Interactive Helmet

Han Shakai is the Japanese phrase for Anti- Social. This head piece is designed to prevent communication when the wearer is face to face with “the wrong person” according to predetermined conditions controlled by power holders. The Design poses a critic of the grip that descrete parties of interest hold over our social interactions through means of networked technologies.
