VR and (post)human sexuality
Ed Fornieles presents a talk on the new possibilities that VR opens up in the domain of (post-)human sexuality. By reflecting on his recent work on VR porn, Fornieles opens up the discussion of the new visual cultures of the virtual era, their internal tensions and political problems, violence and pleasure, new possibilities and cruel limitations. A poetic manifesto on truth, pornography and a future that is not.
