I made this film. Essentially a valentine’s card, it’s short but has a sexy soundtrack and features the ultimate erotic architecture; several ‘crotch shots’ where walls and ceilings meet in the pavilions in the Giardini della Biennale in Venice.
Architecture is the Ultimate Erotic Act, 2014 (2 mins 15 seconds), made especially for Sex Shop.
SEX SHOP is an artist-run distribution network for social products. Just like sex it brings together people from all walks of life. Just like a shop it distributes useful goods.

Last week I finished working in Cambridge after building a pod structure on wheels. I had a great time getting on with some constructing and also chatting to artist Rosalie Schweiker, who is running the ‘Emely Cafe’ at Aid & Abet at the moment.
The ‘Reading Space’ that I made was especially for Kobo Abe’s book ‘The Box Man’. The idea is that the reader can get into this space, wheel it around until they find just the right spot and settle down to read. There is a cup holder for coffee too of course and a plush red seat. A hole in the floor allows the user to out one foot through and scoot themselves about flintstones-style.
Rosalie kindly filmed some short snippets of me road-testing the reading pod. Here I use it to steal cake.

Artist Corinna Spencer has also taken some great photos of the exhibition – see them on Flikr here
