AMBUSH® ARTIFACT 006
Society dictates that an item isn’t ours until a ritual of exchange has been performed. The role of the security tag is to supervise this process through either sensing a transgression and sounding an alarm or facilitating a transaction by being swiftly removed. The presence of a security tag on clothing is the ultimate taboo, leading to somewhat uncomfortable questions of ownership and integrity.
The AMBUSH® Security Tag Pin plays with these basic beliefs and boundaries in a mischievous manner. But the pin’s flawless form and gold or silver composition ultimately leave little question that it does indeed belong to the wearer and its most important purpose is to boldly adorn their clothing. The result is an object that reimagines security at an individual level and interprets authority to be something that emerges from within. A simple, rectangular form enables the pin to be positioned anywhere — on a lapel, sleeve, or front pocket –– for sophisticated accessorizing. Both a sculptural and emblematic piece, the pin becomes a totem of social rebellion and at the same time, a striking accessory with an effortless attitude.
