body forms again










these video's are a continuation of the distorted body form images i made.

bodyforms 2 - 6, 2009
















these are digitally manipulated images of myself. i was thinking about the manipulated image, and how in the media images of celebrities (''people'') are manipulated in a really homogenous way. the images i've created here are a subversion of the generic, photoshopped face of the media. i think the fact that they are of myself creates a friction between sabotage of the self image and a reaction against societal physical ideals.

i'm interested in the distortion of form at the moment. I think somehow these are a retalition against the 'body perfect'. manipulating the body digitally but not to ''perfect'', but to create something new entirely. (2008)

This was my first stop-motion film. I like how the form kind of crumples. That guy is my friend John.
