#EatShitDAE, You Know, For Kids


The Food Non Food department of the Design Academy Eindhoven picked up and moved to Milan for Salone 2015, and their exhibition program about the cycle that keeps living things alive is called Eat Shit. I don't know if they pronounce DAE like "die," but if they do, their hashtag has already won Milano.


Darunee Terdtoontaveedej tweeted a photo of an awesome toy industrial pig farm/slaughterhouse [above], designer as yet unidentified. I'd worry that the piglets, the chainsaws, and some of the cuts of meat might pose a choke hazard, so no unsupervised play.

The best pic I've seen yet is from the run-up, where department chair Marije Vogelzang announced the show by screenprinting the logo, an impressionistic portrait of the poo emoji, on her kid's pants [top]. And during the exhibition you, too, can screenprint the logo on a garment of your choice, for just 5 euro. What can I say, when you gotta go, you gotta go.
