Mole count explores themes of self representation during online sex, questioning both the visual influences and the performative aspects.
The work aims to be a personal ongoing exploration of the creative process that results in the sexual image (movements, framing, POV, perspective, gaze) based on bodily aesthetics drawn from commercial porn.
The sexual image, as influenced by pornography, represents a sort of simulacrum that is consequently nourishing and reinventing behaviours, poses and choreographies in physical encounters.
Mole count also focuses on the idea of an evolving subjectivity through the experience of disembodiment: the sudden intimate emancipation from rigid bodily aesthetics. A moment of rupture.
