'O wonder! How many goodly creatures are there here! How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world! That has such people in't!' -Miranda, The Tempest
PLEASE FULL VIEW!
Actor: Claudia Tory
Photographer: Your host
I shot this just today in Claudia's lunch break. No time for makeup or set up really. No post-production afterwards other than cropping.
This is the poster image for my next show - iexist.com - actually, but I liked it so much I decided to post it here also. Claudia is one of my actors in the show. Aren't I lucky that my cast are so damn beautiful?
And a bit of the text from the show (which we'll be writing as we go). Some of you have seen this bit a while back. Once again, I'd like to point out, I can write with normal punctuation but I'm playing with trying to get a dance rhythm through the language - lagarto and staccato sections - and I'm working with the style in which teenagers tend to write online:
I document my existence with photos videos blogs i exist i know i exist because there are photos to prove it and i pout and i pant and i tilt my head this way and i tilt my head that way a little cleavage do you want to see some cleavage i exist i know i exist. i know i exist. up here in my room. iexist.com. a pout a pant a tilt cleavage midriff eyelashes see my tattoo see my bruise see me
And you all clammer back you go girlfriend hang in there love yeah my dad hits me too concealer lots of concealer try this brand hot yuck gross hot mmmm.
I exist. I exist. I cant believe i exist. believe i exist. answer me. Respond. Refresh the page. Refresh. Refresh. Refresh. 10 minutes 20 minutes half an hour an hour. Refresh. Refresh. Refresh.
Love to know your thoughts both on the image and the monologue.
