I Need More does not seek to at all critique or deconstruct the language of pornography. It aims to be pornography. As it stands it is somewhere between porn and documentary. Inevitable now I suppose. I don't like art that begins with the assumption that we know better than them: meaning that art has something more meaningful to say about the world. The meaning of the world is already there in the world in abundance. 'What you see is what you see' as they say. - Scott Redford Jan 2003
