This is not pornography. Spaces filled with removed figures.

It's really awesome how the indentions on the furniture are present, but bodies aren't.

Actually, as someone who's done a fair bit with Photoshop, I can say that this guy needs more practice, but I like the concept nonetheless.

It's like Fark, without the funny.

Gadzooks! Where once glistening porn cried "FORNICATION" from the page, now cheap, lonely furniture moans to be sold to the salvation-army from my web browser.

Excuse me! Let me eat the cherry from atop your sundae. Let me roast your bowl black and then hand it to you. Let me fart on your pillow before you go to sleep and leave a turd in the fridge for your breakfast. Why must you attack my smut? It's all I have!!!

*weeps*

Yeah, the photoshop's pretty bad-- the Hiroshima-like shadows of the humping people bug me. However, it does illustrate how depressing the settings of amateur porn can be.

It's not pornography.

It's also not intresting.

Obscene Interiors is a much funnier take on this, with snarky comments on the terrible decor. I think it used to be a website that I probably saw here, but now it's a book. You can see some fun samples though.


(yup, here's the previous post )

You really must wonder what's going on in the head of someone who obviously spent hours and hours erasing the people in these pictures. A psychoanalyst's field day of repression, I'd imagine.

How do humans smell

Terrible

I agree with the awful photoshopping.... Better left to the folks at Worth1000...

Huh -- I thought these were very interesting. Yeah, the photoshop's pretty bad, but I thought the overall result was I pretty cohesive statement about the loneliness and desparation of commercialized sexuality.

See, that's your take on it. It could just as easily be a paean to the joy of improvisation, the can-do ethos of porn and a nod to its sheer ubiquity.

Metafilter - Hiroshima-like Shadows of Humping People

It would've made a cool game, though. On one side we should have the figures, on the other side, the furniture. Then we could have an amusing web-based pr0n game where we match the figures to the furniture.
