Data-generated · Sexuality
In 2016, I gathered data from 180 diverse women from around the globe on what they currently fantasise about. Through the research, I learnt that sexual fantasies change depending on life stage, culture and sexual history. For example, there were some people who fantasised about rape, and an equal amount that didn’t want to be reminded of their rape history.
Some people had quite complex scenarios running through their head, for others it was more snatches of detail, a hand or feeling.
The darker the line in the visualisation, the more stronger the pattern. I’m grateful for all the women that contributed to this work.
This work was built on a broad survey and interviews. Rich qualitative data like this begs to be played with in a myriad of ways and the data generation took multiple forms, but ultimately, a circular, inter-connected form was the most accurate representation of something as abstract as sexual fantasy.
