Love It or Hate It? Chrissy Homeland Security Blanket

New York-based artist Chrissy Conant's work is about her dealings with her ultimate fears and insecurities. With her Chrissy Homeland Security Blanket ($850), she "confronts her fear of terrorism by designing a blanket to protect herself against all levels of threat." This limited edition blanket is made of 100 percent virgin wool and was woven by Pendleton Woolen Mills, who was also commissioned for the Ace Hotel's elk blankets.

I would never be able to relax. One for the meaning behind it and two for the price. The proceeds should at least go to a 911 charity or something.

$850 for a blanket with something that is completely useless and stupid to begin with printed right on it? Fantastic!

No offense to anyone who voted they liked it, but who would use this? It looks like dorm room material to me, but what dorm room student has $850 for a blanket? This is utterly ridiculous to me.

A mediocre idea that somehow made it to production. Love it or hate it, the price tag is out of control.

I love the irony. The homeland security advisory system is a joke.

It's ugly and anyone that would spend $850 on it is crazy!

It's hilarious, just like the ridiculous homeland security advisory system. Have we ever been at green? When was the last time we were at blue? Give me a break. Would I pay $850? No. But I like the irony.

For $850 I would be more bothered on the cost of the blanket than the national alert!!

Well, this doesn't seem very relaxing to me. It would just remind me of the state of the world and that's not what I want to think of when I'm snuggling in bed.
