Deep Throat in ASCII

A bunch of Slovenian digital artists have taken the classic porn movie Deep Throat and rendered the entire thing in ASCII animation: Deep ASCII. That picture above? It’s a shot from the opening credits — if you squint you can make out a woman walking to the right along a sidewalk. On their web site, the artists explain their concept thusly:

Deep ASCII is a full length conversion of the classic porno film Deep Throat, which amounts to 55 minutes of pure mute ascii porn. This genre was selected for its dominating close-ups, very convenient for resolutions ASCII can support.

I particularly love the Matrix-like quality of that old-skool, green-on-black computer-screen text. The whole world’s an illusion, particularly when you’re shooting porn in L.A.
