Midterm Presentation Link and Notes
Why no black fetish models ==> because the skin and body and form is the fetish
Black women's sexuality always recast and described as violent:Orlando Jones tweet as example
"smash it/hit it", trivializes the violence that black girls and women face every day.
Defined as other: Dr. Marc Lamont Hill and others calling Lupita Nyong'o's success a result of mainstream fetish link
female bildungsroman centers around man, the transformation from virgin to woman/mother
- triple goddess, three aspects of woman;
- the jezebel
- the metamorphosis: " I'm an insect who dreamt he was a man and loved it. But now the dream is over, and the insect is awake." Seth Brundle/Brundlefly; Link
A woman in three
Constant, happening all at once all the time
Embodying the grotesque sexuality and loneliness, no man brings the transformation
To Do: -- Pictures of the mask -- short cuts of the video -- images from video -- shoot more shots of "virgin" send schedule for milestones
Devin's Notes: -- Is the product meant to be absurd? Or, if this is possible, absurdly useful?
Rena's Notes: -- Canadian restrictions, so where will it be? -- SWOT analysis ==> Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats -- Does podcast influence or will effect it? -- Snaps for MOCADA
Julia's Notes: -- pulling video and images from the area -- geology and geography is now center -- a review sculpture that will be projected -- what kind of projections meet your goals for this project, meet the geology & geography? -- what kind's of images? what does the pulling of images mean? -- "the river is a model of geologic time"
Ken's Notes: -- an auroach is the precursor to the domesticated cattle
-- Fellini's 8 1/2, !watch!, Dolphina: the seemingly sexual woman
-- Think about tones: use color to increase tones -- bitten is still more vampire
-- how explicit do you want the narrative ==> a few minutes later Marina and Rena agreed that context should be explicit -- you should give a context so that people aren't just walking away thinking this is just a performance piece -- take a look again at Kenneth Anger
-- PUSH at the hair metaphor -- PUSH at the distortion so you are not constrained to your body
-- making manifest the tools at your disposal for the metaphor -- is the Viewer causing a disturbance?
-- gathering sounds: scratching, fly buzzing, water, 'sound of hair'
