That scarf is AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL. She should do a matching belt with a catheter and urine!

Yes, and if the blood is fresh, I'm sure it's plenty warm too.

I need to puke

Love the "anti-psychotic PILLows" too.

But, what I REALLY want is a knit cap that looks like an exposed brain.

Think that's cool? I do too... look at this too!

Oh, my god, that scarf is so fucking hot! I've seen people do that tube/blood thing as bondage, but to knit a scarf? Awesome! Can I buy one?

Those pillows were inkjet printed, not screen printed

Yep, it's hot all right, right up to the moment where something snags and tears the tubing and whoopsie, a pint of your blood is all over the floor. Then things get cold very, very fast.

Yuck. What a stupid project.

how exquisitely gorgeous.

i would really like those rugs of bacteria in my house, though. how handy! one could always see the optimistic side of maybe not having the cleanest house, but at least have just a rug depicting black death and not black death itself!

She must have been a goth in high school. Or maybe she still is. A goth. In high school.

At first I was really excited. I thought that she had dyed the scarf with her period blood. (Yes, it would be darker, but it was my first thought). I am a big fan of period blood. But, a tube? Now THAT'S gross.

She is sick!

Nice work - I really enjoy the folk art meets science aspect but I also think the commentary about the science of medicine vs. the reality of our bodies and nature is a little lost in the presentation of some of the pieces because there also seems to some commentary on consumerism tied in as well. It is overtly political work, but the agenda isn't as clear as it could be...

Erica, you called me a transvestite in your article!!! I am NOT a transvestite. How will I show my face in the Bus Stop again? :|
