Feel Worse Soon
Trigger Warnings: Medical
Alter: Xaler, Teres
Material: Dye sublimation onto felt
If you’ve ever had a serious illness or broken a bone, you might’ve gotten a feel better soon gift. It’s a little thing to show comfort and support. It can be a plushie, a blanket, a card, it can take many forms. This is a satire on those. It is covered in hateful messages and poor taste sentiments. We originally wondered where we could collect so much hateful messages. We then remembered the internet existed. These are from a bunch of our friends and strangers online and we collected everything together onto this small blankie. We chose a blankie to be infantilizing to the receiver. Also no, this isn’t actually going to someone in the hospital. We aren’t that cruel.
