Check out Ted Mikulski’s visual commentary on censorship and art.
I’ve always been insulted by bleeps, black bars and pixellation. Even when I was a little kid, someone would always block out part of a one-liner on “Hollywood Squares” or the “Newlywed Game,” and it would just kill me that I wasn’t trusted to be able to handle something slightly salty. I kind of took it personally.
And it only made me all the more fascinated with the dirty joke.
Ted is a Hartford artist who I met when he had an exhibit at the late, lamented Gallery at Black Rock. It always pays off to take an occasional visit to his website, one of the better artist-operated homes on the interwebs.
