Symposium Art Interactive Art Installation
Her Pleasure, Her Desire; Remix is an interactive media art installation, which forms part of a larger series of artworks entitled Euphoric Femme. In the production of this collaborative artwork, various women created personal autoerotic video and audio recordings to be implemented as the source content for the installation.
Her Pleasure, Her Desire; Remix comes alive through audience members who lie down and use a hand-held disk interface to remix the women’s recordings into reverberant sounds and kaleidoscopic imagery projected on the ceiling. Her Pleasure, Her Desire; Remix is an iconic exploration in mediating erotic and spiritual states. It can be considered within the scope of feminist body politics addressing concerns of sexual objectification.
