The presentation I gave at Arse Elektronika 2009, entitled “The Atomic Level of Porn”, has been edited and uploaded by the very talented Eddie Codel, who utilized slides I sent him with a well-mic’d, well-constructed set of footage to make a superior audio-visual product.
The talk is mostly an attempt to show the various ways people have expressed erotica through a lot of variant technologies, and how standards and approaches have shifted over the last (roughly) 100 years in a variety of such attempts. It’s not complete, and I really screwed up a couple facts around Atari 2600s, but otherwise it was a fun romp, especially (based on the comments) you have no idea who the hell I am and where I came from. I got a lot of surprise from folks previously unacquainted with me about the stuff I was up to, and so that was, to me, a great success on that front as well.
There are no printed notes I’m working off of – the order of the slides is my guide. Other than that, I’ll gladly answer questions if people have them but I think the presentation kind of stands by itself.
