13 channel video installation displayed on 13 televisions (excerpts below)
Each video is a short loop (1-3 min). The content is minimally manipulated footage from a modeling shoot booked by the agency I worked for in 1992. I was thirteen at the time. The guy who hired me said it was for an art project. He paid me $50 and told me to ‘act sexy’. The narrative unfolds through the titles of the videos, which appear at different intervals between the loops.
The gesture of reclaiming this footage and locating it within my practice directly confronts consent, agency, and exploitation in modeling.
