An artist paints herself ...
Artist paints herself having sex with each president of the USA

by Cory Doctorow (from this link)

[Artist Justine Lai's oil paintings can be accessed at this link under "works"]

Artist Justine Lai's new project is a set of oil paintings of her having sex with every president of the USA, in order.

[Beginning of Justine Lai quotation:]

"In Join Or Die, I paint myself having sex with the Presidents of the United States in chronological order.

I am interested in humanizing and demythologizing the Presidents by addressing their public legacies and private lives.

The presidency itself is a seemingly immortal and impenetrable institution; by inserting myself in its timeline, I attempt to locate something intimate and mortal. I use this intimacy to subvert authority, but it demands that I make myself vulnerable along with the Presidents. A power lies in rendering these patriarchal figures the possible object of shame, ridicule and desire, but it is a power that is constantly negotiated.

I approach the spectacle of sex and politics with a certain playfulness.

It would be easy to let the images slide into territory that's strictly pornographic -- the lurid and hardcore, the predictably 'controversial.' One could also imagine a series preoccupied with wearing its "F*** the Man" symbolism on its sleeve.

But I wish to move beyond these things and make something playful and tender and maybe a little ambiguous, but exuberantly so.

This, I feel, is the most humanizing act I can do."

[End of Justine Lai quotation]

Wonder what she'll do to Bush and Obama. I have some suggestions, but this is not the right place:)

sorry, but i think she reeks of "sell out"! :rolleyes:
Come on, this is like the easiest most traveled road for a modern day female to take! :rolleyes:
hmmm.....
I wonder if i could become famous and more popular, or earn more money and publicity if i did something more sexually provocative ?

Think i'd rather draw myself murdering them all before drawing myself seducing or fucking, or sexually performing for any of them! :icon_twisted:

I find it more humane to stand up for the people instead of their opposition.

Maybe i should pick the 10 most predominant heads of the movement and start the series with myself for the fun of contraversy. Alex Jones is first...... bermas is next. Dice, LL, and mike smith are in the line up........


sorry, but screw that! ;)I swear, class as rare as gold these days.

um..yeah.. sorry to interrupt that train of thought :DI just needed to say this..

Although I personally like the idea of sabotaging youtube due to it's malign corporate nature, I do however also think that covertly uploading scat videos, or any depictions of HC for that matter, under innocuous headers is so very lame.

There is no doubt that pornography has indeed a rich history of being used as a sociological tool for political purpose, however, although an interesting factual discourse as that is, if one of my still, for all intent and purpose, innocent young female cousins unwittingly exposed themselves to such denigrating and psychologically jarring material as you claim to provide in the link above and encourage people to covertly upload to youtube..or 'god forbid' should my very young son be exposed to such, I can honestly say, even though I am not prone to violence, I would still, nevertheless, strongly wish to punch you relatively hard in the face at least a few times for being such a moron and so recklessly robbing them of part of their childhood INNOCENCE because of something you decided was really clever and funny.

If this is your game, I see you just another idiot and part of the problem tbh. :)

Don't let this put you off posting - I'm not bearing a grudge - just saying what I think personally to give you a little feedback because I felt that you perhaps hadn't responsibly considered the actuating mode of your intentions enough...or more likely, whatsoever.


ok, please carry on where you were folks, I just needed to express those sentiments...

Let me offer another perspective, if you let your cousins or your son use your computer without close supervision, it's your own fault and you should punch yourself in the face. There's a reason why they only give internet connections to adults.

I think this is important, because the whole argument about internet censorship to 'keep the kids safe' is null and void. Kids shouldn't be able to access the internet unfiltered, it's their parents responsibility to watch out for them, not somebody else's, not the governement, not your ISP. So you can't really blame somebody for posting crap on the internet, as long as he doesn't target sites that were suitable for minors in the first place. And which sites are suitable for minors? You decide. Youtube shouldn't be one of them.

I take it you don't have kids, Hans - or at least are glibly unaware of how easy it is for them to get net access nowadays, irrespective of home computers with filters enacted.

Youtube runs a policy of requesting a birth date for videos it considers unsuitable for minors - so it isn't like a kid could search for sesame street and end up unexpectedly watching some guy shitting in a woman's mouth...but then, you already know that.

Basically, don't do an impression of that woman by talking complete crap. Uploading scat to youtube and doing everything possible to make sure it seems completely innocuous is fucked up, plain and simple..I know what game that is - it's subsumed belief of authority over another by being able to anonymously mess with their minds - it's not a million miles away from psychopathic/sadistic tendency, as it goes - read up on it for yourself - Anyway, I'd feel the same way even if it was just me that stumbled upon it - and I'm not a minor - so your argument is null and void. There's a BIG difference between censorship (as you call it) and ambush upon someone's psyche anyhow imsho.

It's taking liberties with peoples' personal choices and exposing them to things they maybe don't want to see and surely don't need to see - I choose NOT to watch scat and don't take very kindly with some wazzock attempting to ambush me with it, either....ESPECIALLY in the guise of some supposed 'forward thinking political statement'..Gimme a fucking break.

If I pay to go and see a stand up comedy act ( I know you don't really have that in Germany but anyway..) then I am not going to be offended if the comedian decides to make a few jokes at my expense - that it might happen is part and parcel of what you implicitly have agreed to - however if I'm just walking down the street and the same comedian starts taking the piss out of me - then I'm going to ask wtf do they think they are doing..if you can follow the analogy.

Seeing as you're taking the moral high horse against 'censorship' (:rolleyes:) where is it applicable to draw the line then - by the proviso of your statement - there should exist no line - great, cool, so if someone decides to upload a video from Dagestan that Muslim fundamentalists have made of them pointing a video camera into a 19 year old Russian soldiers face while they saw his head off and he cries out and gurgles for his 'mummy' while laughter ensues in the background - FOR EXAMPLE under the title 'Terminator 4 - best bits' then you'd be down with that, I assume, considering the 'perspective' of your argument.

Punch myself in the head because some 'radical internet activist' pimped scat to me or kids?? Get real.

edit) where'd you run off too then? :rolleyes:

Doesn't have to do anything with me having kids, nik. How is it easy for kids to get net access nowadays? Please explain. You know I don't want to attack you personally, or talk down to you. I really don't. So please don't take this the wrong way. But you are not taking responsibility for your kids. I mean, not in this instance. How is it "easy for kids to get net access nowadays"? Please explain. They are under your supervision. You're basically saying, "make the internet safe for kids". The internet was never a safe place for kids, and doesn't have to be.

Having said that, you don't need to tell me I'm "talking crap". I don't appreciate you talking down to me either.
