Yamil Piedra on A Pair of Nuts' Breakup, Calvin Klein, and His Interactive New Show

It was one of the most memorable moments from the Super Bowl earlier this month. Calvin Klein's Concept black and white ad is centered around a dark male figure whose body is nothing less than perfect. Set to a mechanical electronic track, the commercial is like a scene out of Fritz Lang's Metropolis combined with a heavy dose of engine oil and H.R. Giger. It is reminiscent of things futuristic, old, dirty, and beautiful all at once. The figure moves his body with calculated and precise movements, showing muscles as if they were built from steel twine.

And Yamil Piedra took a dump all over it to promote his latest solo project, The Pretty Rock Project.
