A buzzing of fascina, 2020
https://nbyaa.eu/en/nbyaa-artist-submission/ “A buzzing” is the artists proposed collective noun for fascina. Fascina a posher word for dildo, chosen for its etymological connection to fascinate and general obscurity. I found that neither dildo nor fascinum, (singular of fascina) had a collective noun. A language blank to fill in. The joining of dead flies and a pink dildo creates a stark image which might bring people to think about death, futility and our attempts to find pleasure and joy during the time we live. The phrase “le petit mort” is not far of as a quick joke.
