PORN
SHOWS
TOO LITTLE.

REHUMANIZE short-circuits the thought process of sexual objectification going beyond skin deep to discover what it really means to be human.

REHUMANIZE won’t instantly heal a lifetime of shame or addiction but it can– and has served as a powerful first step for many towards restoration into health and wholeness. (NSFW)

REHUMANIZE IN THE NEWS

The local news came to the REHUMANIZE gallery to talk about objectification, art and what it means to be human.

If you’re trying to figure out what REHUMANIZE is all about– this video is a great place to start.

ARTIST STATEMENT

Sexual objectification and pornography approached as moral failure misses the heart of the issue; when we dehumanize others we dehumanize ourselves as well.

REHUMANIZE short-circuits the thought process of sexual objectification, going beyond skin deep into discovering what it really means to be human.

I created REHUMANIZE from existing sexualized imagery curated from over 10,000 images online. I restored the chosen images with a bold artistic aesthetic and a provocative, rehumanizing message.

To enter the messy world of sexual objectification and pornography, to re-claim this imagery, to ‘clean them up’, and place them back into the world with a new story has been a powerfully redemptive process– in medium, message and method.

The intent of the show is to make space for meaningful conversations around issues of sexual objectification, identity and self worth.

REHUMANIZE has shown at major music festivals, anti-human trafficking advocacy events, Ivey league universities, collegiate functions, private parties, art markets, as well as various other events and exhibitions.

REHUMANIZE won’t instantly heal a lifetime of shame and objectification but it canand has served- as a powerful first step for many towards restoration into health and wholeness.

I can’t fully explain what happened to me while creating and sharing REHUMANIZE, but if you spend some contemplative time with the work, I think you might feel many of the same things I did..
