The Suicide Kit
Tasked to unravel the Underground Cultures of the world through mountains worth of research, It is understood that it is against the law to commit suicide which includes voluntary euthanasia and assisted suicide in majority of the countries around the world. This results in people being forced to find their own solutions and methods of ending their life and misery. Through the research, I have discovered that an underground trade which resides somewhere on the web that sells suicide kits which consists of a informational booklet and some plastic tubings.
To show the world how easy it is to actually buy your own death with just a click of a mouse, i decided to create my own rendition of the suicide kit i found. I came up with a total of 3 different suicide kits which are packaged in styrofoam trays. The rationale behind this is due to the fact that the convenience brought to us by the internet is similar to going to a supermarket to purchase your groceries - no age, race, or gender limitations. The styrofoam trays are commonly found in the poultry section in the supermarket with a content label and this was applied to my suicide kit. This was done to show the irony of how the animals which are often packed in these trays have their lives forcefully taken away from them unlike us as we have a choice to live on but instead, we choose to conveniently throw it all away.
