Now I know how Joan of Arc felt
As the flames rose to her Roman nose
And her iPhone started to melt"

claytoncubitt I’m the type who’d be happy not going anywhere as long as I was sure I knew exactly what was happening at the places I wasn’t going to. I’m the type who’d like to sit home and watch every party that I’m invited to on a monitor in my bedroom. –Andy Warhol [outtake from Wired's "Sex Issue," possibly available as a print collection directors cut soon] 4d

claytoncubitt I shot thousands of images for the Wired Sex Issue, but we only had room for a few. I've been thinking of releasing them as a printed "director's cut." Is that something you'd like to see? 2w

claytoncubitt The Harvard scientists discovered that the watch factory was thick with radium dust. The employees were frequently covered in it. In the dark, one researcher said, the dial painters glowed like luminous ghosts.

They sprinkled the luminous liquid in their hair to make their curls twinkle in the dark. They brightened their fingernails with it. One girl covered her teeth to give herself a Cheshire cat smile when she went home at night. —The Poisoner's Handbook

claytoncubitt Young artists who wish to represent the sexual aspect of the human condition need to be aware that for most civilians sex is a blindingly bright star and they don't have the cultural telescope needed to look at it directly, so anything approaching truth in sexuality will blind them the way looking directly at the sun does.

Most people, sadly, actually prefer their sexuality in the shadows, or reflected and abstracted through metaphor. So no matter how liberated you might be as an artist, either through accident or effort, you'll still spend an inordinate amount of your time trying to explain the beauty of the cosmos to a man who refuses to open his eyes.
