Metallic Ink Printed Underwear Make Constitution Statement On TSA Scanner

 4th Amendment Wear.   A novel approach to the TSA’s new assault on a citizen’s constitutional rights. Tim Geoghegan and  Matthew Ryan from TIMMOVATIONS have a message. 

We found metallic type that could, in theory, show up on TSA scanners that would display the 4th amendment. The clothes are designed as a silent protest against the new reality of being searched to the point where we’re basically naked. We don’t intend for this to be anything more than a thought-provoking way to fuel the debate about safety vs. civil liberties. If we sell a few items, great. But the main intention is to open more dialogue. It’s more of a conceptual piece than anything else.

There must be better ways to keep us safe while also respecting our freedoms. This project’s only intention is to get the right people to explore all of those ways.

For those who want to camouflage their family jewels, and make a statement.

The store offers Metallic Ink-Printed T-Shirt, Metallic Ink-Printed Underwear, 4th Amendment Printed Socks, Perverts Printed Kid’s Underclothes, and Perverts Printed Underclothes.
