“With the collection of imeographs in Corpus Absurdum, Thunk Tank has attempted to bring forth a Verschiedenheit to confront bourgeois notions of gender, the body, space, and relationships between “real” art and classical notions of bodily “humors.” Transcending photographic norms vis-à-vis transgressional associations between lay perceptions of the image as object/bearer of meaning and techno-normative arousal mechanisms, it is our intention to force the observer/observed into a dichotomous engorgement with the turgidity of representation and the ecstatic. In fact, our intention is to instantiate congress with established methods and practices of the wider artistic community through the auto-erotic, solipsistic act of artistic creation—without ceasing, without sensation, without sense: Thunk Tank.”
