A typography experiment using different hand made textures, and hand made variations of the font Century Gothic Bold. First I printed out a sheet of paper with “What Is Your Problem” in Century Gothic Bold. Then traced over the text in 20 different variants, changing the way i traced over it every time. Then I created 20 textures using different techniques. For the black and white image, I layered every trace on top of each other in order to show my tracing process and to present the extremes in a more obvious manor.

What is it about group sex that fascinates people so much?
Is it the delightful defiance of conventional ideas of what “rules” sexual acts should follow regarding number of participants?
Our ancient ancestors would use orgies to celebrate life, birth, spring, femininity, and other natural things.
Further back humans would have many partners to ensure the continuation of our species.
Are we supposed to get it on behind closed doors, lights out, curtains drawn?
Does it go against popular religion?
A party that Pope Alexander VI threw in 1501 was described as having “…courtesans, who danced after the dinner with the attendants and the others who were present, at first in their garments, then naked.” and “…prizes were announced for those who could perform the act most often with the courtesans…”
Perhaps people feel too self conscious to even entertain the idea that sex with an audience could be anything other than horrific?
One of our favorite “courtesans” (Definition: a well-educated and independent woman of loose morals) in the world puts it beautifully.
“there isn’t much room for judgment or close mindedness during group sex and being in a room surrounded by like minded people is liberating and sexy and really fun. because you’re not focused on “all of that shit”, everyone is there to hang “all that shit” up for the duration.”
So hang all that shit up for a moment and enjoy.
