Fænomenet uopfordrede dickpics har fået mig til at tænke en masse forskellige tanker. Da jeg holdt op med at være vred over følelsen af at blive involveret i et underligt pikmagtspil som jeg ikke forstår, begyndte jeg at undre mig:

Hvad skal jeg stille op med sådan et billede? Er det meningen, at jeg skal synes at pikken er flot? For – no offence – det gør jeg altså ikke, hvis jeg ikke kender ejermanden. Skal jeg blive tændt af det? Det gør jeg heller ikke. Og hvad med samtykke? Et dickpic kræver altså også samtykke fra modtageren, eller at man indgår i en relation, hvor man har aftalt, at man sender den slags billeder til hinanden. Og til sidst: Hvad er egentlig det danske ord for dickpic? 

Glansbillede! 

For fanden, ordet må jo være glansbillede og så rullede det hele ellers. Jeg fik den idé, at man kunne lave portrætter af pikkene og tegne blomster, vinger og lignende, tilføje glimmer og gøre dem til rigtige glansbilleder. Men så vendte jeg tilbage til samtykke. For selvom jeg har modtaget den slags billeder uopfordret ville jeg ikke bare bruge dem. Så jeg fortalte en række mænd om projektet og bad dem pænt om et billede. 

Det var heller ikke ligetil og der har været mange misforståelser under vejs. Nogle af billederne blev aldrig til portrætter af samme årsag. Men tre portrætter er det blevet til. Der er givet samtykke til, at jeg måtte tegne portrætter, lave portrætterne til glansbilleder, dele billeder af både portrætterne og glansbillederne og sælge glansbillederne bagefter. 

Ikke nok med det, hvis du køber et ark, må du også dele og bytte lige så tosset som du vil! Det er der nemlig givet samtykke til og selvom det måske virker som et sjovt og finurligt projekt, så er det ikke kun sjov og ballade. Det handler også om at fortælle, at man ikke må dele billeder af andre menneskers nøgne kroppe og individuelle kropsdele taget i intime situationer, hvis man ikke udtrykkeligt har fået lov.

As a single woman sometimes frequenting Tinder and other dating apps – or maybe actually just as a woman using the internet – you risk running into a phenomenon called ‘unsolicited dickpics’. For those of you lucky enough to not know what that is, here’s a short explanation: you receive an email/message/Snapchat or the like from a male individual whom you do not know only including a picture of his erect penis.

Now, there are a lot of different preferences out there, but I dare say that most women don’t appreciate receiving a photo of a strange man’s erect penis just like that, surprise, while say, checking her email when queueing at the supermarket.

This phenomenon (unsolicited dickpics) fascinates me and I've given it a lot of thought. When I stopped being angry about feeling dragged into a kind of dick power game, I started to wonder: what do I do with such a photo? Am I meant to think that the dick is beautiful? For – no offence – I don’t if I don’t know the owner of the dick. Am I meant to be turned on? That also doesn’t happen. And what about consent? A dickpic requires consent from the receiver, or that you are in some sort of relation where you’ve agreed that you send such photos to each other. And finally I started to wonder what the Danish word for dickpic would be if we didn't just use the English one (as we do).

Then it hit me: Glansbillede! (Danish for scrap picture – you know like vintage scrap pictures).

Of course. The word had to be ’glansbillede’! (In English this needs a bit of an explanation: glans i Danish means several things, for instance sparkle, glory and glans – as in the head of the penis. Billede means picture. So glansbillede=dickpic. Get it?)

Anyways, then the whole thing took off.

I decided to create dick portraits based on the photos. Portraits of dicks with flowers, wings and the like to turn them into real vintage style paper scraps. But then I returned to thinking about consent. Because even if I’ve received unsolicited dickpics I wouldn’t just use them. So I told a bunch of men about the project and asked them nicely for a photo of their penis. Now this wasn’t exactly easy and there’s been quite a few misunderstandings along the way. Some of the pictures were never made into drawings for the same reason. But three drawings did come out of it. Consent was given that I could make drawings based on the photos, that I could make paper scrap images based on the drawings, share pictures of both drawings and paper scrap images and sell the paper scrap images.

And if this wasn’t enough; if you buy a sheet you can share and exchange the images with others as much as you’d like! Consent has been given. And even if this seems like a fun project it’s not just about fund and games. It’s also about reminding people that you cannot share photos of other people’s naked bodies or body parts without consent.

So this week the images went to print. And there will be glitter on them and glitter isn’t exactly cheap, so I’ve created this Kickstarter – or should we say Dickstarter – were you can pre-order the images. They will be ready mid November so what a buy getting a few to give away for Christmas? I’m so looking forward to sending out the orders.
