Black_Box_Love_Part_I is a series of transcribed dialogues from porn movies of the most popular, freely accessible online platform in the world. From the category “Reality” the most popular videos were used. The transcribed texts start at the same time as the dialogues in the videos and end right before the actual sexual act.
By isolating the dialogue, the porn video as a whole is unmasked as a powerful hyper-fake product and inside this black box various, complex and parallel levels of reality unfold.
The spoken word, which primarily serves to “legitimize” the sexual act and its image, is surprisingly diverse. The highly stereotypical figures meet now, reduced to their speaking, on a bizarre, often humorous level, with shifted roles and flattened hierarchies.
