April 9th, 2019: Not Goatse

Thomas Thwaites is GoatMan, not Goatse, thankfully.
That doesn’t mean he’s not strange, he certainly is, just not that way.



Quote:
I tried to become a goat to escape the angst inherent in being a human. The project became an exploration of how close modern technology can take us to fulfilling an ancient human dream: to take on characteristics from other animals. But instead of the ferocity of a bear, or the perspective of a bird, the characteristic most useful in modern life is something else; being present in the moment perhaps.
Escape the angst inherent in being a human? Seems to me he’s just adding the angst of being a goat.



Quote:
Anyway I ended up in the Alps, on four legs, at a goat farm, with a prosthetic rumen strapped to my chest, eating grass, and becoming a goat.


Quote:
I wrote a few paragraphs about the project. I sent them to Princeton Architectural Press, who said if you write the rest of the project up, we might publish it, and lo and behold, a book!

I'm going to have to ruminate on this one.

I'd expect that from an old Billy.

I guess the helmet is for when the goats get tired of him and give him an unfriendly tap.
