Selective Focus: Bed(s?)

Kip Praslowicz

Kip Praslowicz, untitled

When I announced the next week’s theme to be “bed,” I certainly did not intend that to be singular- that Kip Praslowicz would represent the only submission at hand. However, it does now occur to me that our artistic community might be reticent regarding anything that resembles prurience, at least publicly. Lesson learned, beloved new home.

Let’s not ardently seek grace in grand aspirations like “tacking visual discourse towards our human and social capital” (as one tousled blow-hard once declared). We can find grace where it most often happens: in spite of ourselves, and often entirely without our deliberate intervention.

Next week’s theme will be altogether wide open. Send us your best work, period. As per usual, unwatermarked, signature-less images by Wednesday at 11:59 p.m to tim @ — 1000px at their largest dimension — along with title (if any), and URL of your website, Facebook page, Tumblr, or Flickr stream.

I meant to send an image I took just for this theme, but I got distracted by the did the bed-seekers in the photo.

I've seen a lot of campuses in my time, and UMD has to be thee absolute worst case of nobody hangs out anywhere out of doors, because why? Because the shuttered architects who designed it back when had never seen the light of day and couldn't imagine any future student would want to either after they'd graduated, realizing they were pretty much going to be entering a 9-5 world of attached garages, indoor exercise facilities, and reality T.V. whereby nature and blue skies would become obsolete. Therefore, didn't create any places to hang outside UMD when they imagined that cinder block of a sad bunker, except for the concrete embanked shit-core of a patio we see above, whereby one brave soul finally says "Fuck all you pasty lard gobbling administrators, I'm hangin my shit out to dry right here."  

But oh yah, Duluthians could very well be afraid to talk about the beddy sack, probably owing no doubt to that pentecostal northern snake handler background you mentioned.
