3P

The porn on the Internet are always full of male-gaze situations and the sounds of women orgasm are been exaggerated and stereotyped. In this piece, I tried to reexamine the absence orgasm sound of male and create a intimate space for people to experience. 

3P is a participatory sound installation which involves two people to sit down and face to face in a long red tunnel and the third person could adjust the volume of four speakers on the top of the installation.  As for the speakers, I collected lots of sounds of male orgasm from my friends and selected four of them and put them in the four speakers so each speakers stands for one person. Inside the installation, people could experience how the sound bouncing and rebuilding through a feminine space and rethink about their sexual relationships.

 

在大部分的網路平台色情影片中,充斥著男性視角的凝視與禠奪,而女性的喘息聲與形象總被刻板化與放大,形成男性聲音的缺位。此件聲音互動作品,試圖透過在陰性空間中兩人的凝視去探索男性喘息、高潮聲的存在與變化,由象徵女性陰道的長型通道與四個喇叭所組成,在裝置的前後側挖空了臉部位置,讓觀眾可以坐下並將臉部放入,在點亮蠟燭的黑暗通道內部互相凝視。四個喇叭內的聲音,為我請數個男性友人錄製他們的喘息聲,並從中挑選四個分別放置於不同的喇叭,而喇叭可透過第三個人來進行聲音音量的調控與改變。在通道內,兩人臉部的對應與男性喘息聲在光輝下的反彈與撞擊,以一種私密且獨特的形式進行著。
