Research and Trials
To inform this project, I conducted a research study to “identify how sensory stimuli evoke pleasurable response in humans”.
Two rounds of the survey were conducted. The first asks “What is sexy/erotic to you?”, the second “What is euphoric or incredibly pleasurable to you?”, with subheadings for each of the five senses.
The photographs in this series were printed on oversized glossy paper for a lustrous, almost wet appearance. The image here shows an installation of early experiments. Viewers were given slices of mango and grapefruit to taste while viewing.
