Exotic? Erotic?


Net artist Prema Murthy's web project "Bindigirl" explores tele-erotics and intimacy. Bindi is the name of the artist's online alter-ego. (The name refers to the dot that Hindu women wear on their foreheads to signify that they are married.) The character Bindi is a construct of fe/male desire, fashioned from of what is popularly deemed "exotic" and "erotic."
