"I was thinking a lot about intimacy—specifically the hands as tools of intimacy and sexual satisfaction for the self and others. Simultaneously a nod to the internet era (think lolcats) in which the two most viewed types of content were cats and porn. The cat (aka the mascot of the internet) and the obvious (and crass) colloquial leaps one could make to link the two categories… are the bodily implications of using technology inherently intimate or sexual? Scrolling is synonymous with fingering."
