Okay, let me walk you through this one.
The Thing Quarterly is a “periodical in the form of an object.” Says its site:
Each year, four artists, writers, musicians or filmmakers are invited by the editors (Jonn Herschend and Will Rogan) to create a useful object that somehow incorporates text. This object will be reproduced and hand wrapped at a wrapping party and then mailed to the homes of the subscribers with the help of the United States Postal Service.
The most recent issue (Issue 16) is a work by Dave Eggers in the form of a shower curtain.
The text on the shower curtain is a monologue told to Dave Eggers by his shower curtain:
Editorial note: While actually in the shower, you will not be able to read the monologue that Dave Eggers’ shower curtain is telling to Dave Eggers.
As with all things Dave Eggers, I can’t quite tell if this is incredibly awesome or if he’s just screwing with the rest of us. (Most likely, both.)
