FLOWER POWER – part one

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been working on 3 films for 3 different studio classes, for one of them I’ve been filming myself getting ready, from fresh outa the shower to made up in full makeup. My intention for the project (after I’ve edited it all together) is to install it to look like a bathroom mirror itself in the gallery, as a commentary on beauty conventions, makeup rituals and the ways in which women inhabit this way of being.

To work on these projects I’ve been borrowing a Cannon (+ tripod & fancy time lapse programs) from school, and ooohhhhmygod it’s so much fun! I’d set up a floral theme for the ‘mirror’ video to farther emphasize the feminine quality of the project, and it ended up being a super cool effect in so many other ways too. Here are some of photos I’ve taken in between filming, while just playing around. (most are long exposures, fancy!)

Collaborations with Colby – Floral Patterned Skin

A few months ago Colby and I had a photo shoot day in his apartment. He just gave me the (film) photos he took with slide images of family vacations and flower gardens projected into the wall and my bod-ay-ay. Here they are:

It’s funny how they turned out exactly and nothing like I imagined.
So happy with them, absolutely love the articulations of colors on skin, and now just want to take more more more!
