Simulation

In Simulation, I use the green screen of video as a metaphor for alien assimilation. Through the green suit, my individual identity is obscured for a strictly gendered one signified by a wig, dress, and heels. I assume the role of a generic woman dancing to explore the sexual politics of dance, as a site of charged societal expectations.
