Fleshmap: Studies Of Desire

LINK quote [Fleshmap is an inquiry into human desire, its collective shape and individual expressions. In a series of studies, we explore the relationship between the body and its visual and verbal representation. "Touch" investigates the collective perception of erogenous zones. We asked hundreds of people to rank how good it would feel to touch or be touched by a lover in different points of the body. The resulting images reveal a map of sensual desire with multiple focal points and islands of excitement. While Touch examines collective patterns, "Look" explores individuality and the hidden surprises that each body reveals when bared. Through a process of abstraction, the piece reveals the multiplicity of formal possibilities contained in a single body part. "Listen" investigates the relationship between language and the body].

  1. i thought it was good, except the male look- part was disappointing.
    in the lady look bit there's loads of tits and three different ways of arranging them. in the male look bit there's just the hair around their nipples?? and no different ways of arranging them. i really don't think the hair around a man's nipples are the most erotic thing to see on his body. not that there's anything wrong about nipple-hair, i just think it's like they didn't know WHAT to pick as the male look bit, and just picked something random. and then couldn't even come to think of different ways of arranging what they had picked.. i think it's sad that people find it so hard take an interest in the male body - even when making a project involving the male body like this one.
