Abstract:

Her Pleasure, Her Desire; Remix is an interactive media art installation, which
forms part of a larger series of artworks entitled Euphoric Femme. Inspired by sexpositive
feminism and sacred sexuality, Her Pleasure, Her Desire; Remix is created in
collaboration with a network of women who are reinventing sexual expression. 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 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. It aspires to politicize women’s
sexual agency.
