Alien BobAwaken said:OK, I give up. I've seen that freaky head dude a lot recently. Wtf is it?
Sometime around 2001 pics started floating around FYAD depicting a weird puppet/alien thing in some very akward and often violent sexual situations with women. Most notably was a picture of three men holding a girl by force while pouring a glass of milk on her head as Alien Bob looked on in lust.
I can't recall who first posted the pics or who made the macros with "Let Alian Bob fuck you" on them. I can however tell you the real story behind all the madness.
"Alien Bob" as we know him is a product of an artist named Charlie White and his project "Understanding Joshua"
Here is a brief summary taken from NPR's website:
Charlie White photographs vulnerability.
Using a humanoid puppet he calls "complete fragility manifest in a body," White presents human frailty through a fictional character, much as a novelist might.
As White tells Jacki Lyden for Weekend All Things Considered, his puppet, called Joshua, helps him to explore the themes of male self-image and self-loathing. White places Joshua in a series of vulnerable situations -- at a cocktail party or a lover's house -- and photographs the scene.
A google search will net you the original source pics and more author information. Charlie White has several books available at Amazon, please use the SA store sponsors link if you would like to purchase.
