Here's a "for instance" on interpretation:

What if I posted a nicely lit black and white picture of a set of beautiful female breasts with shiny nipple rings in them.

One person would say, that's hot.

Another would say that's disgusting.

Another would say I'd like to suck on those.

Another would say, I'd like to put a leash on those.

Another would say the piercer didn't get them quite straight.

Another would say those breasts are too small.

Another would say, I like barbells better than rings.



What if we took the rings out:

A lot would say, that's hot.



What if we replaced the rings with large safety pins.

One would say, that's hot.

Another would say that's disgusting.

Another would say, that's torture.

Another would say, those breasts are too small.


It's all virtually the same picture. The only difference is YOU the viewer.




Do I really need an artist statement?
