Consumed by 6X6

A Tolerance for Milk Drinking

We looked at Consumption the other night with 6X6 curator Lindsey Klonoski and a willing crowd. Really, it is not a flattering picture. Jennie Thing's world is full of the wrappers, chewing, and whirling flotsam-ephemera of our cast-offs; Ash Sechler fetishized the esophageal blooms shaped by our swallowing mechanisms; Ted Kuhn pushed those mechanisms to the brink by drinking milk in excessive quantity, but he also shared it with the audience via the tiny glasses of a communion set; Paige Mostowy contemplated a set of personal visions of all or part; Jimmy DeRoth drew comparisons between sloth, weight, and fitness; and Tom Ketteringham engaged a young teen in a thoughtful dialogue that scared one witless. You can consume for yourself:
