How Sexting Is Influencing Art – Motherboard VICE

“We share our sexts because the sexts themselves aren’t the true point. They’re an echo of an intense experience, digital remnants that gesture towards, but never fully recreate, a moment of intimate exchange. Digital intimacy may bring us closer, but once the intimacy itself has faded, the digital flotsam that remains is no longer connected to another human. Until, that is, we reignite that sense of intimacy by using those sexts to bond with friends, strangers, and even Canadian filmmakers over the sheer absurdity of sex itself.” Motherboard VICE
