Puking as Painting? Live Nexus Vomitus Artwork

Remember that time we showed you how to make Skittle Vodka, and we all had a good laugh with the tagline “Puke the Rainbow” ? Well, little did we know that somewhere out in the world, that was already happening. Meet Millie Brown, vomiting artist, and her project Nexus Vomitus.

It aired live online as Millie drank glasses of colored milk, and then proceeded to puke them up all over blank canvas, with the added bonus of a gentle operatic soundtrack provided by two live singers. Sounds pretty weird? It is. You’ve got a room full of women in American Apparel jumpsuits, prancing around, singing, and delicately puking up splashes of brilliant beautiful color.

It’s also a little bit gross, but it remains a strange sort of fascinating. Check out this edited video of Millie’s performance (the full one is over the course of half an hour.)

A quote from Millie that really sums up the absurdity of the entire performance:

“I’m not really a fan of appropriate foot wear on a good day so I don’t see why I should be sensible when I’m puking rainbows either.”

One thing is for sure, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything quite like this before.

Author, Designer, and "that girl your mother warned you about." Looking good seems to be my job, whether it's working with the site design, or a number of other more interesting capacities. I have a ridiculous sense of humour and a brutal sense of honesty- you'll see a lot of that coming through in my writing, so don't say I didn't warn you if I somehow manage to offend you AND hurt your feelings at the same time. On the plus side, it makes my dating and advice columns a lot more pertinent to an unfinished man in the real world.
