Are We Hard Yet

Nick&Chloe and Zeitguised in a dalliance with erotics, exploring the function of this very intentional form of photography to wreak havoc on our appetites and desires.

This project attempts to create new meanings with every new order of "remixing" the original image, without completely erasing the original meaning, but rather playing and commenting on it through added layers. It playfully twist the language of erotic imagery into absurdity by its own seductive means, without collapsing the celebration of the senses.

The title, besides the obvious, also winks an eye at the artists showing off a harder edge in their work, and solidifying soft shapes into hard material forms.
