The Number of the Beast (2004) - Cory Arcangel


'Iron Maiden context' :-) now it's correct, becouse it has nothing to do with religious beliefs and sexuality.

Thank-you.

PORNEA

image

'Pornea' is a deeply symbolic pornographic movie aimed at evoking both sexual excitement and mystic experience, as well as aesthetic experience. Due to its allusive and fully computer-generated form, the project falls beyond the scope of contemporary censorship mechanisms.

The Pornea project includes materials subliminally stimulating the recipient (content active both by means of sound and view).
