【Cyborg’s Romance】depicts a virtual and sensual emotion in the Cyborg world, implying Internet love and sensual expression in recent years. Cyber sex and Internet prostitution offers an opportunity for people who are complete strangers to conduct physical contact and exchange. They do not pay any responsibility but to fully enjoy the process. It drives the endless expansion of human desire, dismantling lovemaking into “sex” without “love.” Young people are deeply brainwashed by a large amount of erotic signals on the Internet thus normalizing it in the process. Video dating, erotic videos and pornographic websites are abundant, all of which distorting the concept of sex. This work depicts a scene in which a female masturbates and reaches orgasm from the angle similar to how pornographic videos are shot. The female character is asked to open her legs, showing her privates generously. A large amount of cold metal colours are applied to the background, suggesting that this kind of sexual behavior is apathetic. Under the emotional contradictions between the theme reaching a climax but the background remains cold (colorwise), it aims to expose the real aspect of sexual behaviors on videos, the Internet and digital photographs. After all, it is viewers’ unilateral burst and flow of desire; it is difficult to get into any communication with others’ true feelings.
