Consumer Watchdog

Meant to be worn, this visual pun piece juxtaposes a beanie baby plush toy with a Fossil watch to suggest “watchdog.” A consumer watchdog is someone who looks out for consumers’ interests and this piece is a plays on that idea; if you wear the piece, the stuffed puppy watches you(r spending habits). The scale of the piece allows the watch to be worn comfortably while still offering a sense of whimsy and thus contemplation.

Medium: Thread, plush toy, watch.

Critique: This piece should be displayed on a model or be available for viewers to put on themselves.
