HyperLip is a set of wearable plastic lips that contort the face into a bizarre toothy grimace. French designer Sascha Nordmeyer created the lips back in 2009 as an art project entitled “Communication Prosthesis.” The lips are intended to help insecure people communicate more easily by forcing them to make a single silly facial expression. HyperLip will soon be sold by Los Angeles design company Artecnica. They will also be available for use at the traveling exhibition, Olympus Photography Playground — the next event takes place in Cologne, Germany, September 11th to October 5th, 2014.
