dESIRE Update

dESIRE #003100
Recent sales and a trade bring the price of one unit of desire (100 intangible desires and their photographic representations) up from $200 to $500. The last increase was in October 2008 when the price was raised from $125 to $200 due to global inflation and demand. There are still units available and I can always make more ;)

Artist Jason Sweeney has made a 'silent film' of my flesh photos as part of his Faceless Music project. He is currently collating materials (recorded and/or written stories, sounds, noise, anecdotes, nightmares and confessionals about attempts at living a life online) and reworking them into an audio-museum project. The project is being assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council.
