The erotics of virtual human creation

by Critical Commons Manager

The reconstruction of a "perfect" being from cyborg DNA results in a naked and inexplicably orgasmic Milla Jovovich, who is subsequently scantily clothed and trapped in a glass cage for the pleasure of a group of male scientists and soldiers. The mechanics behind the cinematic trope of creating perfect beings through technology is rarely dealt with in such detail, reversing the cryogenic slicing of the Virtual Human project with an automated sequencer. Why do these moments of creation always have to be sexualized?
