This is a limited edition artistic project situated somewhere between a fascination with the whimsical nature of aircraft safety art (much like Avi Steinberg) and a concern with the human condition as outlined by psychologists like Philip Zimbardo - that we can all transgress the line between good and evil more easily than we care to admit.
As a body of work, Joe Prole has turned 52 acts of human brutality (and 2 of ill-directed 'good') into safety art. Putting them onto playing cards seems like the perfect resolution of the project's spirit - ordinary people do messed up things. In the throws of a leisurely card game, remember that evil slips out in the most normal of times.
What is needed:
Funds for printing and distributing the deck. If you donate $10 then I'll post you one free deck and if you donate $18 then I'll post you two free decks. See 'perks' on the right. Please add required postage if you are not in the USA or we cannot deliver!
300GSM US 'Poker Size' Cards. Standard pips and numbers (Hearts, Spades, Clubs and Diamonds).
If you want more than two decks then donate an extra 8 bucks per deck. If you want a signed card and a deck (or two) as well then just add it all up (add $3 for signed card), donate accordingly, select one of the rewards (one deck, two decks, many decks) and send us a message to confirm the extra reward.
If you want more than 12 decks then message us and tell us why the hell anyone would want more than 12 decks of Safety Playing Cards!
We will reveal a new card on the website for every $200 donated.
