You Speak Too Loud

General rule about public spaces, speaking too loud is akin to invading someone’s personal space. It’s intrusive and sets off a round of evil eyes. I could care less what people think of me which is why this concept came across my desk. “Helmet To Hear Oneself Speak” is a paper helmet you print. Words bounce off the mouth shield into the ear ducts amplifying your volume which is supposed to encourage you to speak softly.

Another helmet called the “Helmet For Telling Secrets” assists secret telling. If people weren’t staring at you before, they sure as hell well be looking now.

    …the phrase is ‘i couldn’t care less’! – it means that you care so little for it, that you couldn’t care any less.

    communucation should be encouraged, even at volume. cant stand the silence on the tube.

  • Margot says:

    And I’m wondering who would wear this?

    Nice way to spruce up a boring morning commute, on say, the subway.

    They should be available as a less expensive, non-fine art screenprint.

    When I wore another such helmet on the subway by the artist, it did encourage a different sort of communication between people. Overall it did have a nice, offbeat and positive effect on people which is something design (and art) should do.

    This is what happens when you got to much free time and nothing interesting to do… You should create a dog’s version. Perhaps $2,400.00 would be a good price!
