Chat erotica per kinect
Gomez-Arias’s video reveals this intersection of the corporeal and the digital, underlining the impact that computers have had on how we view our own bodies, especially in this most intimate of acts.
Looking through computer eyes back at ourselves, we see a pornography for the future.
Gomez-Arias obviously appreciates the technological capabilities of the Kinect in terms of filmmaking, but it was philosophy that originally led him to the idea to shoot pornography.
He decided to make a video that reflected on a quote from the philosophers Felix Guattari and Gilles Deleuze’s book, “Every love is an exercise in depersonalization on a body without organs yet to be formed.” “I thought it was very poetic, working with the idea of creating bodies to be constructed and deconstructed in the sex act,” the artist explained.
They’re ghostly forms in a world more digital than physical.
“I wanted the gestures, movements, and the relationship between the two people to be as real as possible,” the artist wrote to me in an email.
“I did not find anyone who would be recorded having sex, so I decided to do it myself.” His girlfriend wasn’t convinced.
Do you want horny, filthy fun but at a cheap price?
Calls cost 36p per min plus your network access charge.What makes the piece even more interesting is that one of the people in the video is actually the artist and the co-star his girlfriend.
