39 Steps Until Disappearance (2013)

Performance for the camera.  

Medium: Inkjet Prints
Dimensions: 5x5in 
Commission: Self-initiated
A photographic experiment using sequential imagery and performance-for-the-camera in an attempt to harness affect. The performance explores feminism as a linear narrative by emphasizing a linear movement through time and space.

The images refer to the act of undressing, and the casting off of the heavy coat signifies a rejection of the (man-made) constructs of femininity while subtly referencing the fashion industry’s perpetuation of this construct. After the coat is discarded, the viewer is left with the uncovered woman, but eventually even she disappears and only the coat remains.
