The Shit Stream

The Shit Stream is a blog documenting all of my bowel movements. I got the idea from a discussion about obscenity in art that suggested that defecation is one of the only subjects that may still be considered obscene by the law (in fact, an early version of this project was censored by Flickr). I was also interested in the idea that feces is like a little sculpture that we create every day. It becomes a type of portrait, since the composition and consistency are determined by diet, stress, and other facets of daily life.
