Cunt Cam
digital video

A small camera inserted in the cunt casts its gaze outside of the body. This technological eye displaces vision from the head, the site of thinking and logic, and resituates it in the cunt; it is the body doing images. The very site of women’s supposed shame and lack is refigured as an electric eye that has a subject position of its own. Playing with Lacan’s notion of the gaze, the Cunt Cam both opens itself to the gaze of the Other, and gazes back at us. It is giving itself to be seen, and casting a critical eye outwards; it watches you watching it.
