An Erotic Device by Simanion An Erotic Device by Simanion
This was the final piece of a series completed for a group exhibition called SEXSELLS: Observations of an Eroticised Consumer Culture. Here's the Tumblr: sexsells2012.tumblr.com/

Touch & Technofetish: This series explores the increasingly erotic undertones in our relationships with modern technological devices - most effectively symbolised by Apple products such as iPhones - from their physical design and fetishistic advertising, to the stimulation-based way in which we’re intended to interact with them. These digital photomontage compositions are supplemented by two abstract watercolour paintings that deal more organically with physical stimulation and sensory pleasure, and the common forms used to express these sensations.


This one is a summation of that whole concept, bringing in all kinds of Apple-related technologies and comparing them with erotic glamour shots and idealised bodies of men and women. The ease with which these images all fit together is pretty revelatory, with their common smooth, sleek, high contrast and highly reflective surfaces. When looked at in this context, all the objects and their design take on a certain suggestiveness - from the Mac mouse tessellating perfectly with the curve of a woman's ass cheek (lol), to the phallic cable connectors.

Well you can try, lol. You don't think there is a deliberate element that draws upon sexual connotation in their design and advertising? It's not overt, of course. But even Steve Jobs himself talked about bringing "sex" back to Apple products.

Thanks heaps Eric! This was my original vision actually, and whilst working on it other separate ideas sprung out, so I think it kind of binds them together. I'm glad you like it man :D
