Description:

A look at the depiction of human fetish and desire in the making of video art and video pornography. The author argues that the depiction of erotica, pleasure and satisfaction are equally revealed in both types of film making, making the fine line between the two types of styles hard to discern. The author argues that both approaches are valued as forms of entertainment. The author supports this argument by referring to similarities in aspects such as: mechanical reproduction and mass consumption of the creative works.

From the Paper:

"Human fetish and desire are very powerful forces behind video art and pornography. Our need for pleasure and expression leads us to all sorts of ends for personal achievement and satisfaction. Erotica and pornography have rich roots in video art. With the emergence of video came the rise in popularity of video pornography. The historical development of video art and video pornography share obvious technological similarities. Ironically these forms of arts and entertainment do not only hold technological similarities but remarkable parallels in the work that was being produced. In this paper I will further blur the fine and almost invisible line between video art and video pornography. This blurring will show that video art and video pornography are equal in their value as products of arts and entertainment."
