Hero / Functional sculpture


Millions of people die each year from malaria, which is transmitted through the bite of the anopheles mosquito . Like any other insect, there are somethings which can attract anopheles like human skin, warm and hot places and also human’s or animal’s blood. Hero is an idea which came from scarecrows but there is a huge difference between them. Hero can direct anopheles’s focus and attention to itself. Mosquitos bite Hero and then got poisoned. In fact by using a big fake human in rural places just like scarecrows we can reduce the numbers of people whose being bit by anopheles and protect them.
