A Provocative Interactive Installation for Sex Positive Events
GSP_Installations from Jennifer Beman on Vimeo.
People struggle to talk about sex. Social and religious taboos, shame, embarrassment, confusion, lack of sex education -- many things contribute to the silence. The Graphic Sex Project installation seeks to bring sex out of the shadows, and place in a context of joy and delight.
The interactive installation is a multi-layered experience that is both voyeuristic and self-exposing. Visitors can experience the Project at whatever depth they feel comfortable. Simply viewing the gallery of "graphs" is a eye-opening celebration of the beauty and diversity of the human sexual experience. Visitors may also choose to make their own graph -- to contemplate their own sexual values and preferences in a new and enlightening way, perhaps to add their perspective to the collection, or to send their graph to a partner to start a conversation. The experience can travel far beyond the moment, with the participant's graphs sparking dialogue with their partners and opening lines of communication.
The primary material of the Project is disarmingly simple - 1 cm colored cubes. Brightly-colored and toy-like, the process deliberately makes the sexual nonsexual, so people can approach it with their defenses down, and a playful spirit engaged.
