ELECTRODE (2011)

 

performance installation (anal electrode, hacked EMG sensor, video projection, loudspeakers, packaging material)
 

An Anuform® anal electrode connected to a modified Peritone EMG sensor registers the activity of my sphincter muscle. Anuform® and Peritone are medical consumer devices for the treatment of incontinence problems. I fake the orgasm of an anonymous subject who took part in an experiment into the nature of the male orgasm in 1980. I attempt to replicate the subject’s sphincter muscle contraction pattern, which was registered during masturbation and orgasm in the experiment.  I repeatedly perform the same pattern. The data is projected onto a screen in the form of graphs and is used for digital sound synthesis.​
