The series Smashed Porn Star based on pornographic images from the Internet: pornographic sex images have been downloaded from the net and printed out. The processing of the explicit web images is analogous: Using a punch and a hammer, pixels knocked out and shifted. The circular dots are newly collaged together –new body shapes created. The collage makes disappear what was previously in the center. These closely spaced points do not show skin, but bedding, sofa cover or other surfaces of the interior. The surrounding area partially dissolves and produces a new body that turns the pornographic photography into deserted rooms.
