I have difficulty determining what is appropriate for children to see. Would I want children seeing my work? Maybe if someone taught them sex ed for god’s sake. Which they aren’t actually taught. Or art. So how are kids supposed to know the difference between art and porn? Or, can’t we give them the tools to determine this for themselves?
Charlotte interviewed me for the awesome website, Tits and Sass, a “group blog run by sex workers who saw a void when it came to witty commentary on the public image of [the] industry.” It was nice talking to her, and answering her questions, which were all thoughtful and thought-provoking. But I ramble a lot. You can go read it if you’d like; I talk about nudity, and pornography, and working, and other things. :)
Last December I did an interview for You Are Remarkable, a website dedicated to sharing small bits of love to make you happy. Today, Liz emailed me and told me the interview was up on the site.
What is love (baby don’t hurt me)?
Love is a choice you make. Because love is hard and you decide what to do with it once you figure you might’ve found it.
It was a fun interview, with good questions asked. Go check it out if you have a minute. :)
Katie West makes tough work. It’s tough to critique because it seems so personal, tough to look at for the same reason. Viewing a Katie West self portrait is like stumbling on a photo meant to be secret, a photograph taken for just one person. For this reason, her photography raises questions about private and public, of the interior lives each of us live and the face we show to the world. And what can happen when those two selves collide.
I answered some questions for Greg Turner over at his blog. I ramble a lot, as usual, this time about Toronto. But yep, go read it if you have some minutes in between singing Christmas carols and decorating the tree. :)
