SOUNDSUITS
BY NICK CAVE

There's an amazing exhibit
at the St. Louis Art Museum.

Densely constructed wearable sculptures
carefully built by St. Louis artist,
Nick Cave
(not to be confused with the
Australian musician of the same name).

Influenced by the art of Africa, 
Cave was trained as a dancer
with the Alvin Ailey Company,
and now teaches art in Chicago
at the Art Institute.

Each soundsuit is carefully constructed, sewn 
and built of fibers, mother-of-pearl buttons, 
sticks, toys and kitchen tools
to dazzle the eye and create clattering
and crackling sounds when they're worn.

The exhibit will be on display through March, 2015.

  4. I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
