PIX by Antonio Da Silva

We live in times where Internet and social media rule our lives. Gays have embraced online dating and beyond a casual hook up, for some our online profiles and exposed body feed our narcissistic and exhibitionistic side, while for others is an endless voyeuristic hunt. PIX is a series of flickering images (faceless-selfies) of 2500 gay men building a three minutes animation portraying what is happening in the “marketplace of desire”. Thousands of male bodies in typical male poses are put together creating the mosaic of one body.

A mirror, an exposed torso and the promise for NSA fun have become the synonym to today’s gay behavior with dating. But is that the rule or just a temporary -even necessary- phase into a gay man’s life? Does this gay on-line behavior help for better communication or does it isolate homosexuals from the “normality” gay men try to achieve all these years? Is the need to connect emotionally been taken over by the need to push on the “load more guys” button?

No three-minutes animation can answer these questions for you. Only you can, starting the next time you pose in front of the mirror.

  2. brilliant work. editing and putting that together is some doing…wow.
    while this film is phenomenal, i’d have to say with all of it’s imagery in the earlier part of the film and the ultimate objectification of the male body, which is likely to be one of the many elements (you being the artist could only expound upon) of the piece (nothing wrong with it – that’s for sure. thanks tumblr.) i just happened to notice something…
    in the early montage i saw very few (very, very little) men of color. to be more specific, black men… not until we came to the hard dick portion of the film.
    i saw more identifiable black dicks in sharp focus than nearly any brown or black male imagery throughout. even as we moved to the climactic end, that multitude of hard, big black dicks all but disappeared. this begs the question of the typical sexual objectification of the black man, all or in part for that one piece of his body, his cock, to me feels apparent here. the “myth” of the “big black dick” as the verifiable, often alluded to as the big dicked, top, fuck machine. flashing images of 8 inch plus black cock is what i will remember most about this film.
    please do not get me wrong sir, this is a really fantastic piece of work. it is wonderful art to be sure. i would tell all of everyone i know to see it. but as we know, art is a subjective medium, meant to evoke the emotion and conversation of the people who have the pleasure and opportunity of viewing it.
    for me, and just for me to emote here if i may, the images of the black man’s dick viewed as his primary “role” in this film, makes me very sad and reminds me that we as homosexual men can still dehumanize, minimize, perpetuate and typify the black man’s presence in our gay culture. relegated to being a penis. and please know, i am by no means saying this was meant here in your work at all. this sort of thing often operates as an “unconscious” (and sometimes not) inert awareness that exists amongst others, unless of course…you are the very thing of this reality.

    Fabulously done!
    That must have taken you a lot of time and effort.
    I wonder if it includes your own pic as your “self-portraiture”.

    Wow! One gay dude doing the same thing by himself (mostly) all over the world. I find it hot and also sad, mindless and robotic. I like how much I’m thinking about this after watching it.
