T-Post November issue “Sexual Confusion” :

At this very moment mathematicians around the world are working day and night to crack one of life’s great mysteries: How heterosexual women could claim to have considerably fewer sex partners than numbers claimed by heterosexual men.

In study after study and in country after country, men report more, often many more, sexual partners than women. One survey, recently reported by the U.S. government, concluded that men claimed an average of seven female sex partners, while women claimed an average of only four male sex partners.

Another study, by British researchers, stated that men had 12.7 heterosexual partners in their lifetimes and women had 6.5. Researchers intent on solving this dumbfounding equation refuse to give up. But when asked about feasible theories as to why the numbers don’t match up, a health statistician Cheryl D. Fryar at the National Center for Health Statistics could only reply by saying “I have no idea”.


Sexual Confusion is designed by FormaFantasma

FormaFantasma is the design laboratory of two young Italians, Simone Farresin and Andrea Trimarchi. After having finished their design studies in Florence they are now based in Eindhoven in The Netherlands where they attend the Design Academy.

As FormaFantasma they are working with a variety of themes and media from art and illustration to product and graphic design. With an aesthetic referring to Sicilian baroque, mediaeval miniatures and the Victorian black and white graphics, their intricate artworks transform modern vector graphics into what you could call a “digital craftwork”.

For this issue of T-Post the duo created a totemic design that represents the gender connections and confusion in an ironic way.

Using abstract shapes reminiscent of…well, have a close look and you will see.
