A set of erotic books about the omnipresence of eroticism in an online media culture.
PLEASE READ BEFORE VIEWING
The books were not created to show my personal interest in pornography or any sexual activities. The specific angle I chose was, in fact, sexual; however, my intention was to visually demonstrate the boundless and limitless of human psychology and imagination. I was inspired by a quote in the novel, "The Artisan Soul" by Erwin Mcmanus: "We artisans are created to transform the invisible into the visible. The creative act is a manifestation of imagination. Everything that exists began as an idea; everything we define as reality began as nothing more than imagination." I was curious and, therefore, researched about how people transform their fantasies into realistic forms specifically within the internet community such as Reddit. Enjoy.
Vol.1: Drop Your Pants and Work Away
A book about today's eroticism in the "Rules of the Internet", and how it is affecting the internet community. The book emphasizes the fantasy aspect of eroticism and discusses about human's urge to transform their sexual imaginations into reality. The book specifically focuses on Rule 34: If it exists, there is porn of it, Rule 63: For any given male character, there is a female version of that character, Japanese censorship law, and erotica.
Vol. 2: Water Her Garden
Highly influenced by an artist named Stephanie Sarely, "Water Her Garden" visually describes the idea of "fruit-fingering" and the way S. Sarely transformed her sexual fantasy toward fruits into her own unique artworks which exponentially gained a huge popularity in the internet community.
