Body, desire, machine With the influx of media now the presence of sexually explicit images is expressed in areas of life where previously there would have been inconceivable. Off the field strictly pornographic sexuality appears as a trademark holder, and together with the commodification of desire is a completely unmediated gesture of the body and pleasure. These pictures do not mediate a real experience of pleasure and desire, but we are presented with a series of behavioral paradigms and parameters completely fictitious. It's just that media coverage in media where the seeking of Adriana Marmorek beguins, on what she calls the architecture of desire. Her works, object installations, ask initially for the intrusive nature of the sexual image in the media. If we recognize that sexuality is part of the most intimate, it is obvious that its publication is based on the interference of the public lens strictly private space, but it seems that, as viewers, we do not have the feeling of taking the position an intruder to view these images that populate our visual imagination. Although the questions makes us move on a land of subjective and slippery, the viewer and the position assumed at the time facing the images is of crucial importance. Marmorek shows that the reaction to the work relies heavily on a series of positions, stigma, shame, freedoms and operating budgets in it, in short, the significance of each image depends critically on a relationship with our own desire. Through visually seductive images and objects that make us strive to see them, Marmorek configuration reveals that we ourselves have made of desire and pleasure. There is another mirror in the work of Marmorek, no longer based on the presence of the chrome glass: the images themselves, when asking about the reaction arose in us, make us see the mechanisms of our desire equally to see our face as we look in a mirror.
