In porn we trust

UK Artist Jonathan Yeo unveiled his collage of George Bush created from fragments of 100 porn magazines in London.

I'm sure there's a big signficance behind it...but uhh...I don't get it. Now...if the collage had been made out of a dictionaries, or text books...or...any book, then yes...that would have worked for me.

Well I guess it's supposed to be ironic but you're right. It might be made more sense for them to use pictures of injured soldiers and civillians or pieces of the bible or something.

I get the distinct feeling it had more to do with the artist 'enjoying' the research but that's just cynical old me!!!

Bizarre thing!! Thanks for that moment of random pondering!!!

Oh you're welcome!! I was blown away when I saw some of his portraits- that one's my fave tho I think. It kinda makes her look almost doe eyed I think.

Anyway, have yourself a relaxing weekend- put those books down for a sec if you can!!!

Take care,

They are afraid of a strong religious man. This is a insult to men and men that believe in God.

Bush tried to put a ban on pornography. People have been fascinated with people having sex since the beginning, and that can never change. Look at cave paintings, even, and it is obvious we were meant to be sexual. This repression is hurting America.

I do not think God wants us to be ashamed of our sexuality. He made us this way.

LOLOL, nice one, Doc!!!

Ya know, it would have been funny if they had made a portrait of Clinton from pieces of Hillary doncha think?? I mean he WAS pretty much 'created' and dominated by her. Saying that it's no bad thing, we ALL saw what horrible decisions he makes left to his own devices!!
