Juxtaposing material from vintage gay pornographic magazines and lifestyle publications, 'Garden Boudoir Experiment' offers a humorous comment on a changing queer lifestyle. Male models gaze directly at the viewer, their genitalia or heads replaced by other objects: orange juice, champagne, cake, beer... an invitation for consumption.

Pressure gauges, electric units and fuse bolts represent peaking sexual energy and desire. Elsewhere, vintage camcorders, cameras, and record players offer a playful examination on how humanity has become overly concerned with appearance and self-promotion. In this digital age, these images are a celebration of vintage objects set to become obsolete, just like the magazines these original pictures were taken from.
