In an attempt to document the self-imposed borders and restrictions imposed upon male affection and interactions by the heteronormative patriarchy, multiple strangers of varying sexual identities were invited to interact with my passive body in a clinical and de-sexualized studio environment. What was created was a pseudo-queer-performative video work that sits somewhere between documentation, performance and scientific measurement. The interactions are one-take authentic responses. Within the video loop we can begin to unpack nuanced notions of intimacy, power and control, desire, expectation, body value systems and elements of quarantine and disease / contagion within a queer culture sub-text.
