Reductionist porn: an art series by Tom Gallant

With his work Knockers, UK artist Tom Gallant decided to give the classic porn magazine — with their garishness, aesthetically-displeasing layouts and all — a redesign. He drew his input from an entire issue of one such magazine and transcribed its text and images into a grid that reduced these to their average colours. Of course, most of these turned out to be fleshy tones. The resulting 92-page book is both ridiculous and sublime.
