The Homes of People You’ll Never Sleep With (2020 – Ongoing)

A virtual reality installation using edited footage from pornographic VR videos.

I remove all the sexually explicit content from the footage, leaving empty rooms and beds, vacant spaces of intimacy (and performative intimacy). Each scene concludes with subtle movement as a figure enters at the last moment.

This work was designed for VR headsets, but due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, I have only exhibited it as a projection (so far).

In one installation, I included a kinetic air mattress sculpture I designed to twitch and move in the space.
