«Phonegenital» «Phonegenital» is a fresh and important series of critical works made in the MS Excel and dedicated to the transition of Humanity to the Virtual and the dissolution of Personality in digital reality. The smartphone is an important technical basis of this process now. In the works of the series, it satirically compared with «the genital organ of a new type».

«1. Monkey masturbating its phone»

The first work dedicated to the Human’s habit of constantly using the phone, touching it, interacting with it. Perception of the phone as a part of yourself. Feeling the phone as a new organ of your own body.

Look at the smartphone screen. Its most important part is called the touchscreen. A surface designed to be touched. The manufacturer telling us that this is not just another insensitive piece of iron — it has a sensitive screen. Just touch it and it will respond to your touch. In general, the very idea of multitouch is based on body contact, caress and stroking. Moreover, the smartphone itself has a classic Freudian phallic form.

That’s what this picture is about. A small monkey fiddles with his smartphone growing between his legs.

You can see the unique process of creating this artwork in the video.


About the author

Alex ExcelArt, digital artist and digital art theorist. Alex is the author of his own unique method for creating 3D images using the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet editor. Partial, and in some works even complete, rejection of the usual graphic design programs and specialized 3D software allows him to focus more on the content of the work and enrich them with additional context.

Alex is the only Digital Artist in the world who works by this method. The field of Alex's creative interests includes the problems associated with the transition of Humanity to the era of total simulation, the abandonment of Being and moving to the Virtual. He periodically writes articles on this topic, gives interviews and speaks at conferences on computer graphics and design.
