the great sleeping bear

this sleeping bag is amazing. a stroke of genius by eiko ishizawa

inspired by “the news in Bavaria, 2006… a bear, which escaped from the Italian side of the Alps to the Bavarian side. He was called a problem bear, as he was the first wild bear since 170 years. He evoked huge discussion among people and government whether they should kill or leave him alive. In the end, he was hunted down. I was interested in this tragic story of the bear, as well as the starting point of this tragedy; this bear was generating many different ideas and emotions in people as illusions in reality by just crossing the borderline between countries. ”

so basically bears don’t have passports, he was just trying to go on holiday
