Underwear Art

Fine arts student David Woodward was invited to display his art at a Queen's University campus event. But when he showed up on the morning of the event and started setting up his piece called "All I Am Is What I've Felt," the event organizers told him the work was "inappropriate" and "not nice to look at" and asked him to remove it, which he reluctantly did. The piece consisted of ten pairs of embroidered underwear hanging on the wall.

Woodward is upset that he was booted out of the event. He says he wasn't trying to shock anyone. He insists that, "I brought what I felt was my best work at the time." He's surely telling the truth because the hanging underwear was also his final thesis project at the university.

Sounds like some women at that university have underwear issues. And it could have been worse - they could have been worn and not laundered.

Perhaps he should have had them worn on some sexy male models or the Chippendales. I'm sure the women would have had no problem with that. 🐛 :red:

They look a lot better than my underwear, as my wife will attest. I could understand them taking mine down.

This is a thesis? Very weird and lame if you ask me. The artists of the world are in serious trouble when this is considered art.

He could have brought in worn ones in, the insides would have been like Rorschach pictures! 😊)

Click here for the ARTIST'S web page but, you'd think he got a "A" in embroidery.

I'm just glad it was embroidery. The picture next to story is not all that high-res, and at first glance my initial impression was that the artist had actually used various combinations of bodily fluids (applied in ways I would rather not contemplate).

His embroidery skills aren't bad, I like the ones with the fisherman's friend logo! :lol:
I did not find any of the content offensive in any way!
