Touch Parade, A.K. Burns

Touch Parade is a 5-channel HD video installation consisting of crush (9:22 min. loop,) squeeze-2-pop (5:49 min. loop,) wading (3:41 min. loop,) glove love (6:58 min. loop,) and pedal pump (5:45 min. loop.)

The video installation explores “plastic love” or fetish culture and the assimilation of marginalized sexuality on the internet. In questioning what is an explicit and/or illicit image, fetishes found on YouTube that consist of banal gestures, are re-performed. Unlike other pornographic content, these videos evade censoring because they are not culturally recognized as representations of sexuality.

The Video Data Bank offers a single channel version of this work with each channel shown sequentially for screening in educational contexts. Individual channels may be rented separately as well. Contact us for inquiries about gallery exhibition.
