Citadel Orgasm was created by splicing together a marketing video from a data center in Nevada with videos of white men orgasming from a erotic website, beautifulagony.com.


Originally meant as a satirical examination the largely white male tech industry obsession with describing corporate tech interests in terms of socially liberal values, the video is also a reflection on the relationship between big tech and art.


The video is only available via direct distribution - physical handoff or a direct link to a file sharing service.

Iis automatically banned from sites such as Vimeo and YouTube despite being artistic use because the edits do not pass a content screening algorithm despite it being transformative and for artistic use.


However, the distribution method speaks to the lack of recourse for individuals against algorithmic censorship. Complaints filed are dealt with by low-paid contract workers who perform the mental labor of protecting corporate intersts that do little to help or protect them in return.
