Concept: introducing site through “smoking”. The vest is an amplifying device for taste. It is used for collecting water on site, filtrating it and then smoking native or other herbs. One can wear it and wander around “smoking”.

1. Bong construction and use instructions Drill two holes (one opposite the other) in the middle of the bottle. Place the straw on one hole and use the tape in order to avoid air leaking. Twirl paper and firmly attach it at the top of the straw. This will be used as base for the cigarette. Fill the bottle with water (up to 2/3 of the distance between the hole and the bottle’s base). Light up the cigarette and place it on the twirled paper. Tap the open hole with your finger and “suck” strongly. (You can’t inhale this smoke). Take off your finger and now inhale the smoke included. Repeat.

Patterns

Measurements

We need two copies of each pattern. Print the patterns according to your measurments. Grey areas should be folded in order to achieve better fitting on your body. Conect parts with seaming on the outlines.

_experiment 01

Assemblage diagramm This assemblage failed because the waste bag’s surfaces attached together due to pressure (caused by inhaling)- as a result mainly water was channeled through the tube.

_experiment 03

Assemblage diagramm This assemblage succeeded because the bottle was stiff enough, and the pod wasn’t transformed by the pressure.

_AbsoleM- plifier

AbsoleM-plifier : outdoors smoking device. The device consists of water pumps, tubes, filtration vessel, pods, waste cup, ceramic stoppers, tweezers, lighter, tobacco capsules, protection container and equipment outlet, all sewn on a garment. After dipping the tube underwater, pumped water is channeled through the filtration vessel and the main “nargileh” pod. Pumped water can also be channeled to the waste cup or the equipment outlet. The tobacco capsule is placed on the ceramic stopper, charcoal is lit, then the protection container is placed above the ceramic stopper. The device is ready to use.

Use instructions : Wear it. Pump water out of the sight’s water basins. Storage the amount of water, you wish. Choose your favourite tobacco taste. Place the tobacco capsule on the bowl. Light up the charcoal. Smoke. Wander around smoking. Evacuate the device before you secede. Storage your wearable “nargileh” until your next visit.
