Sexy Can I asks how a work of art is a romance. This question is interpreted along multiple lines. There are romances between people, romances between people and their objects, and romances between objects. Is Art the making of flirtatious eyes at the stuff of the world?

Sexy Can I is organized by Third Object. Third Object is all about dancing, online and offline gaming, and the tween-to-teen lifestyle. It’s about the lines of sight between things and the things that see them. Third Object is heartbroken, and euphoric.
