Mental Baggage Statement Totes
Mental Baggage comprises a set of three screenprinted tote bags bearing the statements:
Â â€œFear is Securityâ€ â€œAusterity is Wealthâ€ & â€œSurveillance is Serviceâ€
This series of â€œKeep Calmâ€ spoofs is inspired by the â€œNewspeakâ€ of George Orwell’s novel, 1984, and intends to challenge the concept of creeping control and surveillance – omnipresent in today’s society. Carry them proudly and fight against the notion of public mind control. Stuff â€œKeeping Calmâ€ – rebel against â€œBig Brotherâ€ and show the world that you are onto him!
