Desire Inc.

Lynn Hershman

1990, 26:00 minutes


Desire Inc. is about "the seduction of the media" and how it infiltrates the audience with the ideas of desire that are incorporated into our belief systems. The tape also incorporates ideas about the female body as the site of reproductive technology and notes how primal erotic impulses that result from early (non responsive) fantasy projections become prime sexual motivations later on.
