Her Pleasure, Her Desire; Remix is created in collaboration with a network of international women of various genders. Using a social media platform, collaborators create autoerotic video and sound recordings as source content for the installation. These images and sounds are placed in a database that forms the technical (Max/MSP) and conceptual basis for the artwork.
In the installation, audience members use a hand held disk interface to remix the women’s recordings into the imagery that comprises the artwork. The video material is remixed into kaleidoscopic forms projected overhead. The sounds are similarly processed and reverberatingly fill the space. Her Pleasure, Her Desire; Remix is an aniconic exploration in mediating inner erotic states.
Her Pleasure, Her Desire; Remix, is an artwork from the Euphoric Femme series. The Euphoric Femme series of artworks are inspired by sex-positive feminism and sacred sexuality. Through a social media platform, the artworks are created in collaboration with people who identify as women and who are reinventing sexual expression. The Euphoric Femme artwork series aspires to politicize women’s sexual agency, facilitate women driven erotic celebration, and cross-pollinate art with well-being.
