The journey of life.
“If we are here today, it’s because we hacked the system. “
Orgasmica is a short movie animation conceived as an allegory of the biological journey of life starting from an orgasm.
A theatrical mise-en-scene where the single sperm cells – represented as robots in Orgasmica – progress through the uterus space to reach the egg plasma membrane. Sperm passage is a challenging act. The female reproductive trait is built up with great defence mechanisms, such as its acidic conditions or the vaginal microbiome (good bacteria). The sperm cell that is able to surpass all the obstacles and reach the egg, is the one that is able to hack the system.
The video finishes with a scene from an artificial cell experiment made by the artist at the Cellular, Computational and Integrative Biology Lab (CIBIO) in Italy and it’s the first video released from an upcoming series made in collaboration with the Museum of Science MUSE in Trento, Italy.
The music during the second part of the video (the ‘race’) is a “keygen” track, a music genre that is the result of the software cracking subculture, utilizing this music style as a signature of the hacker groups responsible for software cracking.
