Self Defence Pen

Inspired by Immigration New Zealand’s decision to ban the rap group Odd Future from entering the country, this pen turns a piece of legislation into a physical act of self-defence.

Held as you would hold a key in self defence, the pen's form describes the smooth appearance of femininity, the thick white shell encasing a raw and heavy core of rusted steel.

The tip is sharp and could do damage to anyone threatening assault, subverting the protective act of defence into something aggressive and proactive - mirroring the actions of those who signed the ban.
