Finally, the video is done!
There are things with which I identify so strongly that I have often convinced myself they are the only things that make me valuable, lovable, and worth something to others. In this video, I show myself stripping those identities away… The pressure of fitting society’s life timeline ideal. A sense of humor. Made up appearance. The prospect and promise of ever finding romance and marriage. Artistic ability. The sounds heard in the video represent the identities; when one is seen getting stripped away, the sound if it fades away as well. To physically illustrate the concept of stripping these things away while in front of people was vulnerable, uncomfortable, and challenging, just as it is to internally strip away the dependence on these identities.
