another one I want to mention, and then I'll stop posting other people's work.. A Confusing Potential by Julia Steinigeweg @juliasteinigeweg
What do humans need in order to love? Surely, first of all, a physical counterpart to project our feelings on. It seems to be all about developing and growing into a state of coexistence. Does this require the exchange of feelings? Or do we all ultimately feel and love by ourselves, detached from each other? What is the meaning of our physical counterpart with regard to the love we feel? The series "Ein verwirrendes Potential" (A Confusing Potential) draws on the relationship between men and silicon dolls. This setting lacks the emotional element of the physical counterpart, while at the same time causing a feeling of unease through its strong physical presence, which has been designed by manufacturers and artisans in all imaginable shapes and colours. If the main reason for purchasing was the sexual attractiveness of the doll, the couples portrayed in the series tend to have a soothing relationship free of fear and loss of control.
