This fountain is a monument to male masturbation, and amateur webcam sex. 9 small streams of water are sprayed through the nozzles of hand lotion bottles. There are 12 tissue boxes that flutter and quiver, and 6 empty tissue boxes with fleshy slits. This is documentation as seen in the Miller Gallery in 2012.
The entire structure is in a constant state of near climax, a constant ejaculation flows through the bottles, and a constant orgasmic tremor shudders through the tissue boxes. There is no excitement phase, or refractory period. This is a pure plateau of sexual arousal.
Colby Keller writes: As you might expect, Jonathan's work follows the sinewy, comedic contours of sexuality, masculinity, and creativity that shape my own interest. His final thesis project re-imagines the conventional public fountain as a site of private satisfaction. Jonathan privileges the mundane paraphernalia common to any typical online masturbation ritual-- the quotidian office chair (painted in flesh-like approximation), the Kleenex box (quivering, vaginal), the lotion bottle-- to corral us all a little closer to that discomforting triangulation of boredom, urgency, and alienation which often define articulations of pleasure.
