FUNNY GAMES:
HOW TO BE AN ADULT

Hardback
Limited Edition 3 of 3

Project Funny Games: How To Be An Adult exposes private stories about parent-child relationship and how it is influenced by global POP Culture. 

In what way particular surrounding environment, television and social stereotypes shapes children imagination? Why children desire to smoke fake cigarettes, to become a cowboy or a businessman? Is it appropriate for children to act as adults?

Possibly, their choices depend on particular conditions they live in, yet many siblings are very  different from one another. There may never be a straight answer, however, the main question, investigated by this project is, how adult responds to imagined desire of the child.

COOL SMOKE

Original Artwork
New Media; Paper 25 x 30 cm

'I allow my son to smoke fake cigarettes, because fakes don’t cause lung cancer and it’s all in good fun. My son and his cousin walked around the amusement park with cigarettes in mouth while my family and I hid to watch. We couldn’t believe the stares by adults and hysterical reactions. People believed these two 8 year old were smoking. We couldn’t help but laugh at the crowd. They acted like they were smoking adult professionals.'- Emma from Brighton

HARD CORE

Original Artwork

'Hard Core Style: Wear tight black or blue jeans, camo pants, but not shorts. These will be fine ripped or unzipped but faded is a must. Baggy for Nu Metal, normal for most other styles. Wear metal band shirts baggier for Nu Metal style. Denim and leather coats for Thrash Metal and most other forms of metal ripped sleeves are good (...)
Wear your hair long usually, but if you are young too long makes you look like a girl. Shaved is OK (Phil Labonte). Wear Army boots or white high-tops for an old-school look. Body pricing, white face powder and tattoos are essential.'

'I just want to sign up as soon as possible to serve for Queen and Country. Besides I’m not working at the moment and it’s difficult to get a job - everything the Army offers is great, so I want to sign up. Everything about it attracts me. Getting the chance to have power, deciding what is good or bad for others, amazing arsenal, and financial support for my family. Yes I could be killed in battle, but at the end of the day I could die crossing the road.' - Antony Stanley 18, from Larkfield, Kent

'I don’t like any music or style that sends negative messages. Our subconscious minds read into this even if we “know” not to follow through with these messages. I can see it in my son’s behaviour when I expose him to different types of music. I’m a metal head, when I get him to listen to my music he gets moody and stressed out. When he listens to Disney pop, he wants to buy all the toys in the world. The subconscious messages are way stronger than most people think.'

'A famous photo which has been reused hundreds of thousands of times over the past decade is an image of a young Feyenoord fan swearing. The picture seemed to encapsulate much of the passion, tribalism and hooliganism that exists in football, and thus it went viral.

Now a new image has come out on social media showing just what that kid looks like in 2014. All grown up, the fan now sports a tattoo on his forearm which matches the ink-job which his old man has.' - 101 GREAT GOALS

'Yes, kids should have iPhones! I am 13 and am trying to convince my parents to get me one. Kids are always making fun of me because I have a stupid slide phone. You can also do research at school if you need too. We can have our phones at lunch, but I never take mine because I'm too embarrassed.' - Anonymous at DEBATE ORG 2016

Your kids should have an iPhone because they will make the child feel bad that they aren't good enough or worthy enough. Also the child will feel left out and ashamed that everyone has it but them.' - Posted by: Nicky1234

THOUGH GUY

Original Artwork
New Media; Paper 30 x 30 cm

'(1) Work out. Being feared by other guys is extremely important, so having your butt kicked by another guy isn’t going to help. (2) Wear baggy muscle tees, long and baggy athletic shorts, and stay away from denim or khaki shorts. (3) Don’t let others push you around. Anybody who calls you by a dumb nickname, hurts you, or annoys you in any way needs to be taken care of. (4) Never show pain - it is a weakness, and a weakness will make disrespect. (5) Don’t be overly-chipper about things. Don’t volunteer for things in school, don’t try and act smart. Do not do anything in excess.' - PAIRED LIFE, December 2016

JACKASS

Original Artwork

How to make a slingshot: Find a sturdy, y-shaped piece of wood. Peel off the bark. Let the branch dry before you can get the bark off. Cut the rubber band in half. Get a rectangular piece of leather, it will be your holder (should be nearly square, but a little longer one way than the other). Use rubber bands to secure the other ends of the long rubber bands to the slingshot body. Secure one of the long rubber bands to the back of one branch of the “Y” (should be secured to the wood near the tips of the branches). Use small rocks as ammunition.' - The Art Of Manliness, 2012

Step 1 . Use a piece of spongy foam for best results (purchase from a craft store, or remove from a bed). Use scissors to shape the foam to the size you want. Start big (you can trim it down later).
Step 2. Sew some soft cloth over the foam. Sew a piece of elastic to each side of the fake pregnant belly to hold the belly snugly to your front.  
Step 3. Wrap your piece of foam to your body with plastic wrap, which smooth out any uneven spots in the foam and mold the shape to your body. Then wear close-fitting shirt over it that shows the roundness of your belly.' - WIKIHOW.com

'How to Be a Tomboy. Avoid wearing soft and powdery colours like they’re the plague. Wear bold, dark colours such as forest green, black and camo pattern. Be physically active, especially with sports and do it earnestly. Try a really cool sport like martial arts. If sports aren’t your thing, then try video games. Look for games that destroy players in competition. Learn how to talk. Don’t gush in a high pitched voice. Make sure you sound confident.' - WIKIHOW.com

COWBOY

Original Artwork, 
Paper 30 x 30 cm

'Baked beans are a staple of the cowboy diet. Cans of baked beans also work well for a theme relay race. Each team needs 10 bean cans lined up at the opposite end of the playing field. The first player from each team runs to the cans and stacks them in a pyramid. The easiest configuration is to stack four cans on the bottom, three on top of that, two on top of those cans and the final one on the very top. The kids then knock over the cans and run back to the starting line. The remaining players each take a turn to complete the task.'
- Crossroads Bull Jam, 2015
