Perforated helmet and firearm
by Sebastián Errázuriz
"DO IT RIGHT" or "Clean Suicide" uses the helmets structural properties designed to contain the brain in case of a huge blow. In this case he inverted the concept; the helmet has a perforated side and a real gun permanently attached so that the suicidal person can put the helmet on, close the visor and shoot his brains out. Thanks to the "clean suicide" helmet, none of the friends or family have to clean the bits and pieces of brain from the walls afterwards. His peculiar sense of humor and reality is a weird mix that people have learned to appreciate and celebrate.
