1932 Combination Pillow and Coverlet, C.K. Longletz U.S. patent no. 1,871,003
Night Terror, pairing the Azz pillows with the Emergency Blanket, is a response to the inner battle between security and anxiety, real or imagined, and evokes a nostalgic longing for serenity. The project also alludes to a solution outside oneself and the possibility of being exploited or controlled by the marketing of fear. These are causes for conversation. However uncomfortable the chatter may be, it may be therapeutic.
