Peristaltic Action, Michelle Hines, 1995

“In February, 1995, working in conjunction with nutritionists at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, I adopted a super fiber-rich diet which allowed me to successfully produce a single extruded excrement measuring the exact length of my colon: 26 feet. I documented the extrusion at the CranbrookKingswood High School Bowling Alley, Bloomfield Hills, MI, which offered a length of floor suitable for the process and measuring the results. The cathartic diet was supplemented by a high intake of Metamucil fiber substance. The weeklong endurance prior to the event was ensured by the employment of a plug specifically designed to curtail any premature excretions.”

This is a site that is messing around a distinction between Erotic Art and Pornography.

The goal that I want to achieve through this site is not defining the distinction between Erotic Art and Pornography but is trying to comprehend each distinctive characteristic of Erotic Art and Pornography. And, I will further research how do Erotic art and Pornography modify as a form of Contemporary Art.
