I was at Box 13 last night and one impression I got was that there were a lot of dicks in this show. For example, all the pieces by Joey Fauerso featured a naked guy in a landscape, as in this video, The Clearing.

Then in a show called #notmethough, curated by Cameron Blaylock and Steven J. Thomson, Jonatan Lopez produced this self-portrait, #godmethough.html, where the viewer sees Lopez's body through a bunch of tiny embedded YouTube videos, including one of his junk.

Well, everything thesis has its antithesis, and as far as dicks go, Cody Ledvina's performance eschewed them, as this disclaimer implies:

As a board member of Box 13, I am pretty much required to take responsibility for any dicks in any piece of art we exhibit. If you were offended by the numerous dicks in this show, I sincerely want to hear from you. Write me at: Robert Boyd, c/o Santa Claus, Santa's Workshop, North Pole.
