Screaming often has a negative connotation, with the implication that someone screaming is in pain or fear, but 'Scream Pots' are designed to make use of the potential benefits of screaming. Designed by artist Babak Golkar, the sculptural pots are shaped in such a way that they can neutralize the sound of even the most piercing shrieks, allowing people to shout and scream in public without turning heads and alarming people nearby.
The Scream Pots are all about reducing stress, anxiety, and other negative tensions that people carry with them. Screaming is a cathartic activity -- likely more viscerally satisfying than any piece of art that is created as a catharsis. By serving as art that allows for such a physical act, Golkar's Scream Pots are thus achieving a difficult artistic end.
