“The worst thing, looking forward to genetically altered humans,” Zaretsky concludes, “is that kids will grow to adolescence, look at their parents, and ask ‘what were you thinking’? My Erotic Art is a subset of this critique. A subtle or often not too subtle reflection on the sexual repression that drives technology and drives it into walls.”
