A revealing look at the woman with an excitable appendage and the man it's "tied" to.

Rest of You

What happens when a woman has an abstracted penis that tends to erect in the typical, male cycle? What happens when that penis is actually simulating a real man's erection cycle in real time? This dualism explores the broadcasting of something typically private for both sexes. Women do not have such a salient organ for excitement. Men hide theirs by adjusting, sitting down, or using some other cloaking trick or device.

This project will not be live demoed since it involves erections and penile harnesses. I figured, however, that a clever, humorous exhibit would suffice, displaying both the harness in action (maybe by filling a balloon with water-and draining it- while strapped to the harness) and the motorized appendage reacting to that action and supplemented with documentary footage.
