Domesticated Porn Star Art – ‘Porn For The Whole Family’ – Too Far or Just Right?

When is art no longer art? Is there a line and if there is a line what do you have to do to cross it? – Brian Steinhoff is definitely walking that blurred line between art and pornography some would say.

“The work is a deliberate response to the ever-growing accessibility of ocular carnage that flows freely amongst the tides of a (seemingly) free internet,” Steinhoff said in an email written to the Huffington Post. Steinhoff also said, “simply passing footnotes in the abyss of society’s digital wreckage.”

So what does this mean to you? Are you offended by this artistic installation or are you moved and inspired? In a world where porn and smut are reached at the drop of a dime from our mobile devices to desktops, nothing is out of our visual grasps.

This is a fabulous look at censorship, we see the actions yet there is still so much we don’t see, the models used were real porn stars. The upholstered silhouettes make for interesting illusions of sex and lust in everyday home settings.

Brian’s works are provoking, they poke at our carnal lust and tickle our darkest fantasies. Most importantly his works has sparked many a conversation.

 

Steinhoff is definitely not holding back in this fun look at what we humans do everyday. He has no problem taking something that is so taboo as sex and bringing it to life in a unique light. Is this stimulating? Are we so muted and disconnected that this ‘Porn For The Whole Family Series” does nothing for the primal animal within us.

So what do you think about the art series?
