If you’re already a huge germ freak and the thought of touching a public light switch leaves you with stomach cramps, then this ‘Aesthetics of Disgust’ art installment by Katrin Baumgarten should be skipped. I’m normally not one to get disgusted easily but even my stomach turned watching this sample video.

Included in Katrin Baumgarten’s ‘Aesthetics of Disgust’ is several different light switches that range from disgusting to downright nauseating. One oozes mucous and another has raised hair—but these frightful things appear only when you go to touch it. Be sure to watch the video if your stomach can handle it.
