I met the very wonderful David Leddy last week. Everytime researchers meet, they end up talking about their obsessions so we swiftly moved from live arts, to cultural studies to seduction. I think we both enjoyed the conversation as we sent thank you email almost at the same time. His, had a little present. He said: “Attached is a photo of one of my favourite seductive objects. A pestle and mortar from the Moma design store. I love it so much that I use it as an ornament in my living room rather than a kitchen implement.”
David made me realise the importance of knowing more about personal seductions, specially since it seems I am veering towards a phenomenological approach. What objects make you rock? Can you upload pictures? Would you object me using them as part of my research?
