Teddy Bear 2.0

Despite the advent of parental controls, children are clever enough to easily uncover explicit content on the internet with just a few mouse clicks, subjecting them to intense material far before they might be mature enough to understand or cope with it. This project uses the prevalence of internet sex and violence to re-invent the teddy bear’s symbolic relationship to childhood safety and security.

The proportions of bones to body are purposefully skewed to juxtapose the teddy’s surface cuteness with the violence of his affliction. Each one is custom-made.
