xco said...

I have linked to where i found them, thank you very much.

I have also asked a couple of comments up, whose work this is, because i don't know that either and i'm curious.

That is so funny, and also very real in that things like that happen in hotel's, and motel's
far more than most people know. For those that don't get it I would bet that your the kind that leaves the top bed spread on the bed after you've checked into the room. You sit on it lay across it then undress,and clime into the sheets without ever thinking about the fact that the hotel's rarely wash the top spread.

when we have to stay in a hotel room for very long, i take my own sheets, pillows and blankets. if not for long, i take my own sheet and pillow and wrap up in the sheet. that crap happens in rooms. how do we know what happened 2 months ago there.

they are not paramedics.... looks more like they are taking his organs to sell on the black market. ever heard the saying be careful in (country name who I will not say) because you'll wake up in a bathtub missing both kidneys?

e cigarette said...

The rocker in the last photo looks just like Axl Rose.

jake said...

The man in number 4 seems to be more uneasy than lonely. If you notice he's barricaded the door with his suitcase.
And yes, I agree with the kindey statement.

The picture of the man by himself strikes me the most. What could he be thinking about?...

T said...

the 5th one is after prom

Anonymous said...

Two is the hotel staff pretending to be the rich guests while they're "cleaning" and the second last one a gay party =D
Also, last one looks like so much fun!

this is exactly like something ive seen on Diller Scofidio + Renfro's website...an architecture firm that does lots of art/installation projects as well.

Stuart said...

omg the blood stains from the suicide are in the first picture of the toxic people

Anonymous said...

Creepy yet so true..

bunso said...

Yeah, i think the dude in the bathtub? that's a kidney theft...

this is a pretty cool collection. the tackiness of the room, the freakiness of each inhabitant. good stuff...but they don't have my family: full ice bucket, lots of junk food, and the tv on.

Your lonely man really got me. Nice photo

Anonymous said...

Clever as hell!

And no, the rock single doesn't look at ALL like Axl Rose. Good grief, Charlie Brown!

Dude, you forgot to add a DEAF PARTY. Where everybody uses sign languages and corollaries of chaos and disembowelment result.

the following corrections apply:

For those that don't get it I would bet that you're the kind that leaves the top bed spread on the bed after you've checked into the room. You sit on it, lie across it then undress, and climb into the sheets without ever thinking about the fact that the hotels rarely wash the top spread.

If you look at the pictures on the website they come from, you will see that they go in an order. The toxic waste cleaners are cleaning up the crime scene from the death in the bathtub. There is glitter in the carpet for a while after the prom night photo. There are burn marks around the door on the photos after the children with the fireworks. Finally, the room is re-painted after the rock star photo because they complately trash the room.

Very clever. Lyndon Wade is a genius.

Number two would be the maids enjoying your room while you're out... and 10 would be a gay party ... trannys and all

Only cheap hotels use the same bed spread over and over. Quality hotels use duvet covers that get washed after check out.
