5-channel HD video, Touch Parade, (crush) 9:22 min loop; (squeeze-2-pop) 5:49 min loop; (wading) 3:41 min loop; (glove love) 6:58 min loop; (pedal pump) 5:45 min loop.
A video installation that explores “plastic love” or fetish culture and the assimilation of marginalized sexuality on the internet. In questioning what is an explicit and/or illicit image, fetishes found on YouTube that consist of banal gestures, are re-performed. Unlike other pornographic content these videos evade censoring because they are not culturally recognized as representations of sexuality.
A video composite of all five videos playing simultaneously, similar to the installation.
