Kevan Funk brings us a fascinating, graphic, and chilling glimpse into technological advances in the North American sex industry for Belle Game.

"From sex doll manufacturing, dildo factories, VR capture studios, AI research facilities and a plastic surgeon's operating room, this videos is the exploration of the construction of beauty and  sexuality in a very literal way, particularly within the context of the dawning of the uncanny valley moment," he says.

"The mosaic approach was a way of putting a point of emphasis on this intersection between reality, fantasy and the representation of mainstream, heteronormative standards of beauty. There was an active interest in exploring the idea of objectification, without trying to pass a specific judgement. To see how these different transformations or processes of construction either distance us from a sense of human identity or, conversely, echo an intriguing and/or uncomfortable uncanny humanization."
