CASTING COUCH AMATEUR GHOST FUCK
Pornhub launched a series of museum guides and produced a number of tribute films to classic artworks with potentially erotic undertones. The idea to me is funny and I love the quote on their website: “Because porn may not be considered art, but some art can definitely be considered porn.”
So I made art based on porn.
The casting couch is a euphemism for the practice of soliciting sexual favors from a job applicant in exchange for employment in the entertainment industry, primarily acting roles. The mischievous figure within myself finds the resemblance to the art world funny. Bending over is a form of normality in our world as well.
Casting Couch is a funny pun since I’ve cast a couch.
