Biologically, human lips is a tactile sensory organ that can be an erogenous zone when used in kissing and other acts of intimacy. Culturally, lips are considered the most sensual body part in women. Among many gestures women’s lips perform that can suggest sexual potential, Foxy Lovelace is a cyborg Femme fatale who speculates whether sex appeal can exist outside of a human body by delivering an ASMR experience of blowing a bubble out of her artificial lips.
Demo/ The bubble inflates when users approach the sculpture; deflates and vacuums when users depart.
