Video loop from an installation exploring the abstraction, mediation, translation and commodification of desire. A fugue of "yes" in different languages are overlaid on color sequences abstracted from pornography. Inspired by a joke that imagined how a pornographic film would play if dubbed in a different language.
In the interactive version, the observer/participant fiddles with a knob marked "No Nos" which toggles the different languages, a knob marked "Fool around" which changes the zoom level, and a knob marked "Turn on" which switches video loops.
When the observer/participant is sandwiched between two of these setups facing each other, they create a chorus of "yes"es as they construct their desired (pun intended) experience that is perpetually frustrated (a distance sensor shifts the abstraction level and duration of the loop), distracting and distancing.
