DANGEROUS

Concept / Product Design

This project intends to raise awareness of a positive side of anger. This empowering force, together with fear is a powerful human superpower. By using the body's natural ability to produce adrenaline, which as a substance is labelled doping within sports. These tools were developed from the concept of using the idea of provokation from torture, to trigger anger for athletes, that can be used as a form of natural doping.

 

Would adrenaline produced in your own body still be doping?


This project operate in the territory of ambiguity, between reality and fiction, where questions can be raised. These questions revolve around pressure and demands on athletes, ethics, values and human rights in a perspective larger than this project. What is torture? If it is self inflicted, is it still torture? How far are you willing to go as an athlete?

What is human, if some of the properties of our own nature is not allowed to feel or express? Should it really be necessary to have a tool to entitle you to be angry?
