Sex Life of Robots--Check Out Teaser Trailer
The Sex Life of Robots centers around a robot baby and his mother scanning their home computer for porn. It shows -- in graphic detail -- the scenes of robot coitus that pop up on their screen. "It's supposed to be like a silent robot porno movie from another planet," Sullivan explains. Despite the subject matter, Sullivan's creation exhibits a high degree of artistry. His eye for detail gives his movies a gritty, industrialized atmosphere, as you can see in this preview Sex Life of Robots. Warning: the video is not safe for work (NSFW).Wired
His eclectic background includes making rubber roach suits for a made-for-TV horror movie (canceled by NBC), building puppets and sets for indie films, photographing then-budding rock star Deborah Harry for underground mags in the 1970s and art-directing high-concept porno movies. Some of Sullivan's robot sex dioramas will be on display through spring 2008 at Manhattan's Museum of Sex. The images in this gallery are, needless to say, NSFW either.
If we truly thought of these robots as machines, there should be no reason for us to be upset about their sexuality. It is because we see ourselves in these computer-generated robots that we react to them the way we do.
