@DavidFeng I’ve had too much whisky to care. :P

@jturner_ibrs Sigh. I have already returned to the suburbs, which is probably a good thing.

Anyway, look up Hiromi Tango’s work. She’s wonderful. sneakymag.com/art/the-fking-…

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

The artist finds this hilarious, so when it was installed in its current location she made it more vagina-ey. More vagina-like.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

However the patron noted that it’s only gay men who unprompted think it’s a vagina, probably because they have no idea what one looks like.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

But according to her patron, who I spoke with earlier, it’s not a vagina. It’s a drop of blood, with the neon turning into a brain.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

It’s an installation by Japanese artist Hiromi Tango. 10magazine.com.au/blog/holdswort…
