Grammatical Luxation - A Porn 7

Grammatical Luxation is a series of works that has developed out of my past work “Hanged Grammar”. Both works have been made as deconstructing a book of compiled old porn novels written in Japanese. “Hanged Grammar” consists of totally miswritten Japanese letters by blind transcribing the novels with my left hand (my dominant is right), while feeling sexual impulses by reading the texts.
“Grammatical Luxation” was made from the same book. The composed drawn lines on the work are elements which were extracted 'meta-structures' from the novels via processes of translating it into braille (wrote about it in detail below), to throw the original texts into further meaninglessness than that I did on “Hanged Grammar”. Concretely, the elements are traces of ‘deleted proper nouns (a: black)’, ‘marks of errors on proofreading (b: red)’ and ‘added spaces (c: blue)’.
As stated above, the farther advanced version that I have been planning to make, is randomized braille that is aiming to strip out the meaning of original text totally with strictly grammatical way. The above 3 types of elements in “Grammatical Luxation” were generated for that function by extracting from the processes of its translation.

Each elements have 81 original sheets. I composed the random combinations with them by a brief computer programming coded by myself. For instance: (a, b, c) = (a24+, b37+, c36-) [‘+’ and ‘-’ means its invertible position]. Note that the above-mentioned concepts on this work are based on the following concepts/definitions I have set, especially (1), (2), (3), (6).
1) A posteriori disorganization of traditional pan-language system by reference of linguistic theory (by extension, extraction of universal common structure in language phenomena, and its deconstruction).
2) ‘Eroticism’ into (1) as interposition/interference.
3) Applying ‘indeterminacy’ to (1) and (2).
4) Elimination of own direct physicality, and extension of the indirect physicality on actions in (1), (2), & (3).
5) Observation and fundamental re-examination of social institution by (1), (2), (3), and (4).
6) Negations of humanities derived from (1), (2), (3), (4), and (5).
