Bhutanize your House!

Free house Bhutanizations while supplies last!

      

What is a house Bhutanization, you ask?

It’s my offering of fertility and protection by enhancing a wall space around your home with the image of a colorful energetic playful phallus or vulva.

Of course, my version is a phallus or vulva photo-shopped onto an image you provide.

Where did I get this name “Bhutanization“?

 

Note: I may post non-identifying images on my website unless you give me permission to post images that look like “your house” or “your hut.”

It’s OK to Be Naked Day

I suggest we have an “It’s OK to be Naked Day.” Anyone could walk around naked if they wanted to. No one would get arrested. We could even get into that whole novelty bracelet thang with transparent plastic ones symbolizing the healthy aspects of getting naked. Is it possible that after, oh, say 5000 years, we could be a little more comfortable in these bodies we have?

I know, everyone’s worried about gawkers, about the cold or sunburn, about being embarrassed. But we all walk around showing our faces. Oops, nevermind. I should know better coming from the state with probably one of the highest numbers of plastic surgeons in residence. Well, MOST of us walk around showing our faces. Oh, ok, a number of women wear make-up. Well, ok SOME of us walk around … oh, maybe this is futile. But really, can you imagine the changes that might take place? Yeah, we’d have gadz more plastic surgeons.

I wrote about my earliest memory at 3 which had to do with body shame. Since then, I’ve talked with parents on both sides.

Some have raised their kids in an environment where it was acceptable for them to run around naked if they wanted to. There was no shame about their body.

Other parents say they want their children to be prepared for the real world.

I wonder ~ is there a way to do both? Those who got to run around naked seem to be doing just fine in this world, at least as far as I can tell.

But I’m not a parent and never have been. So I back off.

But really, sometimes I just want to open my door and stand on my balcony in the middle of town naked just because I think it would just plain feel good to do that.

And I think it should be fine.

But it’s not.

Maybe we could have an “It’s OK to be Naked Minute.” Starting at noon for one full minute on some specially designated day it would be OK to stand on your balcony naked for a minute. If you wanted to.

What if it was normal to walk into your grandmother’s house and see a doily on the end table that said “Fuck War”?

What if we had a deep common understanding across people all over this world that war is unacceptable, that alternatives exist and should be – must be – used at all costs to work out our differences instead of war?

What if politicians’ constituencies (us us us!) all over the world voiced this message so consistently everyday, like with a doily in their home, or writing it on their body with henna or a tattoo, or skywriting on Veterans Day?

What if we all understood the high costs of war to each and every one of us and said so in many ways over and over?

Could we possibly make war again?

 

This website holds a collaborative art project that combines this sentiment said in as many ways and from as many countries as possible.

If you feel so inclined, create this sentiment in your own personal way and send us a digital image or a link to your site describing your creation. Let us know what country you’re from.

Paint it, crop circle it. quilt it.

Chime in with a comment here.

Can we hear from every country in the world?
