test_object#  is the experiment;
test_object#  is an attempt to escape;
test_object #  born as a result of researching what an object is;
test_object#  made in the name of love towards the objects;
test_object#  is a sexual fantasy.

Unhealthy empathy for objects was the reason for trying to “degrade” them into something simpler (harder to empathize with) - textures, forms and colors.

The wall of textures “Kir texturot” (collage of short compositions on the wall) is a result of an analysis of what an act of objectifying could mean and look like if it was used on objects and then converted towards the human body.

“test_object”  itself (sculpture) is an example of a positive objectification of a person.
(Desire to escape).
Pushing the boundaries as to how people are playing with "forniphilia", the artist is placing himself inside the installation, and degrading himself through the film “Habitat, production and exploitation of Fontanuis Cockus”.
