Your thoughts please

Matthew Millman for The New York Times.

"A urinal by the artist Alex Schweder was playfully affixed to the wall to 'disturb the conventions of domestic living'."

Some conventions are best left undisturbed.

At least it's flush against the wall.

The place is already disturbed with the vein-mirrored pony wall and 70's kitchen.

WTH, put some flowers in it or use it as a punchbowl.

some people want to make a statement out of their home. I just want to fill mine with the smell of cookies. Definitely not for me. I like my conversations uninterrupted.

Maybe this is for marking the territory?????

Madam Pince said...

This makes me wonder why the homeowner (or designer) has to make such a jarring statement.

Would you like fries with that?

Oh dear. I am becoming old. My first thought was 'how convenient!'

Oddly, I came here immediately from The Blue Remembered Hills blog, where the writer remembered a dinner party at an elegant house years ago--and the elderly grandfather going to the sideboard and taking out a chamberpot, pissing in it, and returning to table.

Some days just seem to have themes.

The Down East Dilettante said...

But wait---didn't Marcel Duchamp already do this decades ago? In art, everything that's old is new again...

Jessica said...

playful fail.

Ridiculous.
