Richard Whitehurst creates rape tunnel installation
rating: 0+x


October 4, 2009: An artist based in Columbus, Ohio has come under fierce criticism by the police and feminist group by installing an artwork named "The Rape Tunnel". The artist has stated:

"There is no way in or out of the project room except for this tunnel. As you travel through the tunnel, it gets smaller and smaller, making it so that you have to crawl and put yourself in a submissive position in order to reach the tunnel’s destination," Whitehurst said. "At the end of the tunnel the subject will find me waiting in the project room and I’ll try to the best of my ability to overpower and rape the person who crawls through."
"I want to make it clear that I plan to make the experience as unpleasant as I possibly can to anyone who dares to crawl through the tunnel. I will try to the best of my ability to make them regret their decision."

He has called this the "next logical step" after his previous project, the Punch You In The Face tunnel.

Game and Story Use

  • The artist is clearly channeling Y'golonac (one of the Great Old Ones of the Cthulhu Mythos) - or perhaps some other Eldritch Abomination.
    • What if said entity possesses him when the "artwork" is actively used - or exchanges location with him?
    • Cynically, this sounds less like the sequel to his "punch you in the face" tunnel and more like his "getting severely beaten" tunnel.
