matthew barney

this is freaking weird. bob showed me it a few months ago and i was reminded of it recently after a spirited conversation with someone about the cremaster. don't know what the cremaster is? look it up. most interesting muscle in the human body bar none.

The Cremaster Cycle

Not exactly sure where he's going with it, but its an interesting study in discomfort. Kinda fits into the entire California post-modern art exhibits that are so popular with pop architects (hernan i'm looking at you). Heck barney even covers the "swarm" and "rape" stuff pretty well in this cycle.
Its a strange use of the Guggenheim too. If wright was alive today, he'd be flipping nuts.
