Ecosexual Bathhouse
Sound Design (2016-2017)

Ecosexual Bathhouse is a collaborative multimedia installation conceived by Loren Kronemyer and Ian Sinclair. Sound and music was woven throughout the bathhouse and designed by Alex Last.

“Ecosexual Bathhouse is ultimately a provocation to reframe our perspective on the biosphere, to rethink the social and psychological boundaries between sex and ecology by acknowledging the perversity of our current situation. In the hands of Pony Express, “ecosexuality” is something between an identity and an idea—it’s a strategy for dealing with the world that we’ve created, a way to ease the end by making it more hedonistic and, perhaps, mutually pleasurable. After all, we got into this mess in the first place by forgetting that the earth doesn’t have to love us unconditionally. Rather than approaching the world as a warehouse of insensate things we wish to stockpile for later use, we should consider it a partner in the longest relationship we’ll ever have.”
