DIY IKEA coffin by joe scanlan

while many artists explore themes of death in their work, this work is quite direct in
its exploration. made by american artist joe scanlan, this coffin is part of their coffin
series, offering custom and DIY coffins for sale. while the custom model features
exotic woods and intricate details, the DIY model is decidedly more economical.
taking clear cues from IKEA, this model is ‘a great choice for anyone who prefers
that their funeral be a modest but stylish affair.’ the coffin goes by the swedish
pseudonym ‘kläps’ and sells for 27.50 USD shipped and of course some assembly
is required.
