This on This (A Proposal for the Censorship of Streakers During the Broadcasts of Live Sporting Events) (2012)

"This on This (A Proposal…)" (2012) references Duchamp's "L.H.O.O.Q." Streaking is a metaphor for an intervention into an accepted (masculine) cultural practice. Duchamp, in essence, streaked into the accepted norms of art-making with the readymade. Moreover, my piece is a direct reference to the proliferation of imagery on the Internet, where seemingly bizarre juxtapositions occur without reason, and to the attempted (but never fully achieved) censorship of nudity. Duchamp’s title, "L.H.O.O.Q.", was a precursor to contemporary Internet chat and text speak.
