What pornography is really about, ultimately, isn't sex but death.
(Susan Sontag)

I started for curiosity, documentary curiosity, I would call it.
I did what millions of people do everyday in the web.
I clicked the most researched word, "sex", and began to watch amateur porn videos.
Like a voyeur, a spectator in front of my monitor as a stage, I looked through my camera, operating in the meantime my kind of decontextualization from the pornographic language in which everything is extremely well focused, vulgarised and objectified with the aim to excite the genitals.
I aimed to recreate a content from a stream of pornographic images, letting those frames hidden in a temporal flow to broaden in their becomingness and death be found in new images, photographs, in which time and space become abstract.
My interest was in writing a visual poem, poetic and intimistic, on the flesh,
on loneliness and fragility of bodies nudes and absent, isolated and dematerialized by the pixels and the distance of a monitor screen.
