Architectural Excreta


Earth Junk ∕ Holes

Colleague Andreas kindly sent me this disgusting photo more than a year ago. Maybe it was revulsion that made me forget to post it in the first place, but a spot of harddrive spring cleaning brought it back to my attention.

I am of course reminded of colleague Oliver’s comments on my recent digression on state-of-the-art laser treatment for hair loss and hair growth encouragement, which wondered off into a peculiar discourse on speculative parallels between intimate anatomical enhancements and architecture.

The marker-pen label adorning the orifice above indicates that this is actually some kind of temporary letterbox. Quite why it should be shitting out a briquette of insulating foam is anyone’s guess.
