Kiki Seror’s work explores visceral descriptions of sexual arousal through text. Seror transforms sexually charged, X-rated conversations from Internet chat rooms into sculptural light objects. In 1996, she logged into her first pornographic chat room as an experiment that has since borne provocative fruit. In this and other works, Seror uses the transcripts from these anonymous explicit cybersex encounters as content for her work, illuminating how technology—specifically the Internet—blurs the boundaries between public and private realms.
