sextrument. <2008> performance/video
A live durational performance where I masturbated for one hour, with a Nintendo Wii remote controller. The accelerometer sensor in the Wii-mote measured the speed and intensity of my hand movement, which sent messages to MaxMSP altering the sound of my voice, which was then projected through speakers outside of the room. Behind a locked door, I invited viewers to look through the peephole, seeing only the bottom of my breasts, down to the top of my pubic line, revealing the in-between.
