“Identity” I-III – new xerography

Identification, the service of identifying, certifying Identity that is, remains one of the fiercest battles being fought within this modern day internet. As Google, facebook, Yahoo, Apple and others strive to collect this prize, this Holy Grail, this remedy for that dangerous sickness that is anonymity, they use all the dirty tricks within the repertoire of modern day market street fight. Anonymity was one of the strongest arguments for and one of the most powerful motors of the evolution of modern means of communication. And it has always been a thorn in the side of potentates, structures and autocratic systems. Anonymity is the sworn enemy of power and the natural ally of freedom. And as our features are being scanned and stored in databases, correlated with our habits, needs and darkest secrets, we may loose a quintessential feature of our humanity, our real identity as humans, what Martin Luther meant when he wrote his famous song “Die Gedanken sind frei”:

“Thoughts are free, who can guess them?
They fly by like nocturnal shadows.
No man can know them, no hunter can shoot them
with powder and lead: Thoughts are free!”

“her_face” continued – a sad story II

Amber Rayne was a no limits girl / woman in all respects. In her short life she became a porn star (as actor, producer and director), a drug addict, a rape victim and a cancer survivor (of 2 types mind you).  Born in 1984, she acted in 472 flicks and after finally making it to the big screen died 2015 of an accidental drug overdose through the consumption of a combination of cocaine and alcohol.

“Amber (her_face_013)” is part of the series “her_face dealing with the depiction of the female face or its omission for that matter in modern day web pornography.

“Her_face” continued – TP

She gazes at us, out of the abyss of unlimited data and infinite transmissions, begs the question: “do you want me”? Who is me, who is you, we are all anonymous animals, let loose beasts, monsters that linger in the realm of self devotion, pure ego – “do you want yourself” should be the proper question…

Inaugurating “King Dumb” – a throwback to the eighties

SAR “King Dumb” music video

Usually I don’t do this; I upload only my own stuff. But this was simply too good. This is a 1984 video by an obscure band called SAR (synthetic aperture radar), don’t know where from and I only know this song. I had this one on cassette tape for quiet a long time and stumbled upon this video, don’t know if it’s official, but in hindsight, this one is quiet amazing. I let you be the judge on their new wavy post punk music, but the lyrics (don’t really understand them all, the singer seems to have caught a sniff) are quiet revelatory. So enjoy this prescient piece of underground pop and soon some more of my own.

And on the Jan 20th, 2017: All hail King Dumb!

“Her_face” continued – a sad story

Danis last porn movie

This is a sad story indeed. The flick from which the original screenshot was taken is a very brutal piece of pornography. The ‘actress’, Daniella Pratchet, did commit suicide the day after ‘performing’ in this one. I don’t have any numbers to support that claim, but I read once that the suicide rate among porn actresses is significantly higher than average, which would come as no surprise to me, giving the degrading nature of many of the productions.

New material on the way: Series “Her_face” continued

New porn art work is on its way, mostly SFW

I have been working on some new stuff for my series “her_face”. “her_face” is a series of glitch art prints that deal with the depiction of the female face or its omission for that matter in modern day web pornography. I guess in these works, the definition of glitch is very much stressed, but man, do I care… I am over the shit storms and endless discussion of what glitch art is or isn’t, the community seems quiet ideological, almost religiously fervent…

“sister (her_face_010)”, glitch 4th°, 1741×2109, 2016

If you believe porn sites descriptions and titles, almost everybody is involved in incest. On some pages, 3/4 of the material is labelled as such. So I wanted to pay homage to this phenomenon by naming this piece “sister” – the video was titled brother does sister or something like this. I love the way she does the exorcist trick with her eyes and everything is in place, the running TV, posters in the back, last not least her ‘brother’ behind her… pure fascination. I had to do this one, don’t hold it against me.

KAISAR “Serbian Death Polka” (official music video clip)

Well friends, let me take you to the dark side of eastern Europe propaganda folk. This is KAISAR’s new music video clip called “Serbian Death Polka”.

Speaking of found footage, this really is a find. An old (Serbian?) VHS tape, mixed together porn (the nasty kind of) and a Serbian nationalist propaganda music video, I did not hesitate a spilt second. The song praises Radovan Karadžic whom, let me remind you, is responsible for tens of thousands of barbaric killings – if you like (and have a good day) try googleling Srebrenica, it will ruin that day for good, so be warned.
The musical track is provided by an Serbian polkaganda trio of unknown identity or status (maybe the crowd can clear that up) and reworked by KAISAR who are:
