Humanz expresses the sexually liberalising and desensitising effects of online pornography. Without the physical artefacts of pre-digital porn, eroticisms can be experienced with personal memory and digital traces as their only record. The networked image is disrupted by data from the digital footprint created in its online dissemination. Solidifying on the membrane of the screen, the pixels crystallise temporal flesh. Humanz appropriates images from the internet, sourced via the top twenty 2017 search terms from the world's most popular porn website, PornHub. The pictures are databent using the statistical information PornHub provides on its global users (age, sex and location).
