TSA Communication

Artist Evan Roth has devised a clever way to communicate with TSA workers as you travel home this holiday season. He explains:

T.S.A. Communication is a project that alters the airport security experience and allows the government to learn more about you then just what’s in your backpack. Thin 8.5 x 11 inch laser-cut sheets of stainless steel comfortably fit in your carry on bag, simultaneously obscuring the contents you don’t want the TSA to see while highlighting ideas you do want them to see. Change your role as air traveler from passive to active.

  1. So instead of looking at a monitor, they look through all your stuff physically… much better.

    The rick roll is funny though.

  2. As much as I love the idea behind it all, I’m with Kurt on this. Anything out of the ordinary (e.g. giant laser-cut sheets of stainless steel in your luggage!) is enough reason for them to carry out whatever investigations they please on you. It’s sad, but true.

    That being said, if I didn’t care about being delayed for a few hours, dealing with searches, poking, prodding, and intimidating questions, I’d totally carry one of those things around in my luggage! Heh.

  3. Funny followup: roll up a little “TSA Rocks!” scroll and tuck it in your bum for them to find during the inevitable cavity search.

  4. It’s a great concept but you realize that they would immediately confiscated it following getting their laugh?

    That seems like a waste of money to me…
