‘26th Excretion’ a human form, its skin of cobwebs, cocoon-like. Its inner body made of dust and hair, arches upwards as if trying to escape from its own skin. According to Enzensberger “There are twenty-five forms of excretion known to man: each one a source of curiosity and pleasure” he goes on to say “Man’s twenty-sixth excretion is himself” Christian Enzensberger, Smut: An Anatomy of Dirt, 1968.
