Take a crucifix and dip it urine. What does that mean? Well, in this particular image there is a lot to talk about (reasonable people don't have atavistic reactions). There is piss, there is Jesus, there is an ethereal glow. What does it add up to? It adds up to an image of Jesus that has been de-valued, but is still beautiful, and which still retains its power. It is a mournful depiction of an image that has been mis-used. It is a depiction of an idea, not a literal representation of a philosophy. Is it possible that this is true? Of course it is. In fact, the photographer and many art critics maintain that this is the case. Unfortunately, a lot of people don't understand metaphor. They have no idea how to converse with the language of art. They think literally, simplistically. What's worse, they let other people do their thinking for them. So they hold pre-canned conclusions that, even though these conclusions don't hold up to even the lightest scrutiny, they never waver from. This is the plain face of ignorance. And you can now find the most appalling ignorance all over this country. This thread is about Piss Christ. Discuss. It will be like a mirror held to nature.
