I’ll go ahead and blame Valentine’s Day for this post—I suggest the squeamish scroll no further. (But it’s just so good.)
Jack happened upon this gif last week: a kiss, filmed from inside the mouth of one participant. It’s horrifying, and off-putting, and really, reallyreally fascinating. You can’t look away, right?
If that gif unsettles your stomach, Minter’s video will, too; if you’d like to stare at it in person for a while, as I have, get thee to the ICA’s Expanding the Field of Painting exhibit. Perhaps take your Valentine, too?
For additional, less disturbing “Common Ground” posts, swing through the UJC archives.
