this site’s history

THIS WEBSITE WAS CREATED IN 2003 AS A GALLERY FOR THE ARTWORK OF FRIENDS AND BANDMATES AS WELL AS ANONYMOUS SOURCES. THE ORIGINAL SITE SAID SOMETHING LIKE THIS:

“THIS WEBSITE WILL FEATURE A DIFFERENT ARTIST EACH MONTH. ANY AND ALL ARTWORK SUBMITTED WILL BE POSTED, NO MATTER WHAT OR HOW DISTURBING. SERIOUSLY: ANY AND ALL ARTWORK WILL BE POSTED.”

WE NEVER EDITED ANY OF THE WORK THAT WE SUBMITTED, IT APPEARED EXACTLY THE WAY IT ARRIVED TO US.
THIS WAS TO ENCOURAGE ARTISTIC ANARCHY ON THE INTERNET, MAKING IT OPEN SEASON FOR TASTELESS AND POSSIBLY ILLEGAL ARTWORK, AS WELL AS THE PERSONAL, FOUND & UNKNOWN

TRES. H. ZOUR WAS THE FIRST TO MAKE A SUBMISSION OF FOUND ‘MODEL MAN’ PHOTOS. SOME TIME LATER, PATRICK DEWITT ANONYMOUSLY SENT US HIS SCREEN-PRINTED COLOSTOMY BAGS. FOR THOSE WHO REMEMBER, THE ARTWORK WAS THE ONLY THING THAT APPEARED ON THE WEBSITE & THERE WAS NEVER MENTION OF MUSIC OR ANY CAPITALIST ENTERPRISE. AFTER A WHILE, THE SUBMISSIONS STOPPED ROLLING IN & WE CLOSED THE GALLERY

WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL THE CONTRIBUTORS FOR SENDING THEIR WORK AND OFFER THIS ARCHIVE BELOW. XO CM & CO.
