    Madam X - New York City based, art, Asian American/Philippines
Site Description:
This work is a variation of 3the Postage Stamp Penile Test,2 a patented low tech measuring system for male sexual muscle behavior that determines whether or not the patient has erections as he sleeps.
 
It explores one of the many patented 3innovations2 that contributes to the evolution of sexual attitudes and practices.
 
Ironically, the innovation of self adhesive stamps pose a problem to this technique.It is a fine example of how one idea abolishes another unintentionally for the changing needs of society.
 
The concept of patents address behavioral, economic attitudes and practices in society and its commercialization. 3Patent systems, in return for an inventors agreement to create a permanent and public file explaining their discovery, would be granted exclusive control over manufacturing, sale, and commercial exploitation for a period of 17 years.2 From 3 American Sex Machines- the Hidden History of Sex at the U.S. Patent Office2 by Hoag Levins.
 
I also chose to work under a Pseudo name (Madame X) for this project as it reflects a voyeur anonymity in a twisted manner, like being a closet exhibitionist, a schizophrenic voyeur, secretly watching himself secretly watching.
