Behold, my ridiculous Chindogu project! This assignment was crazy: we had one week to come up with a chindogu (aka a useless invention), make a physical prototype of it, and then make roughly a minute-long advertisement for it. I was one of the only people who chose to animate the ad, although as you can see, the animation is as minimal as possible (and pretty glitchy) because this was all done in a week. You might have to turn up the sound; the levels changed a bit when I uploaded it online.
Oh, also, my chindogu started out as an extra hand to rest your head on when you’re tired in class (my prototype was basically an inflated rubber glove that you could strap onto your shoulder), not this extremely sad product, but my professor wanted me to push it into the realm of absurdity, so there you go haha.
I’M NOT DOWN WITH THIS STATEMENT. AS USUAL, FASHION MAGAZINES ARE ENDORSING BODY-SHAMING. BODY SHAMING HAPPENS IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION TOO. FUCK. WHO WANTS THEIR NATURAL BODY TO BE COMPARED TO A CORPSE? TO THE WOMEN WHO ARE NATURALLY SKINNY, THIS MUST BE HURTFUL. TO THE WOMEN WHO ARE SICK WITH AN ED, THIS STATEMENT MAY ALSO BE VERY VERY TRIGGERING. IN GENERAL, THIS STATEMENT AND ILLUSTRATION COMES ACROSS AS CALLOUS AND INSENSITIVE.
