Butterescher Pencil-Pusher

Butterescher Pencil-Pusher, 2009
dvd, 5:00 minutes looped

A looped video work that presents male genitalia clad in futuristic patterned fabric. The rise and fall of the penis in this work gives the viewer an opportunity to both meditate and scrutinize. The banal special effects and ubiquitous reference to Euclidian space produce a crude depiction of an event not typically represented in popular media. The video’s singular focus on this readymade narrative intends to produce a complex illusionary experience that implicates the viewer in a bodily way.
