Image Conditioned

Some technologies like internet streaming, secretly owe debts to the pornography business. In 1994, Dutch porn company Red Light District developed the first workable Internet-based video streaming system. They blazed the trail later followed by CNN.com (1995), YouTube (2005), Hulu (2008) and many others. Without streaming pornography, today’s webcasts – from presidential addresses to viral kitten videos – would still be the stuff of science fiction.

Taking away the human body and replacing it with fruits, do we still read this images as sexual? What signify´s it, how are we conditioned to identify sexual images in our overly sexualised society.
