i've been craving material possessions of late. i don't know what that is. i think my slightly bolstered income=me thinking i can afford things. i'm still scraping by for bread, don't be fooled.
this woman's work spoke to that obsessive little spender in me though. i read her artists statement about these monstrous beauties. the series is called "hard wear" and she uses expensive coveted materials and produces these growths that look pus filled and painful. some do inflect physical pain. watch the video of her stringing the pearls through her teeth which can be found on her website.
timely i think. did i learn a lesson though? because now i want that gigantic-gross-golden-gum-goiter.
P.S. REMEMBER WHEN MY FACE WAS INFECTED AND WENT TO THE E.R. TO REMOVE THE PIERCING IT REMINDS ME OF THAT, YES.
