Women in Advertising

A friend of mine was putting together a presentation on women in advertising- one of my favorite subjects. Found these telling tid bits...

This guess website really interesting; the adult woman on top is hyper-sexualized/ semi-pornographic while the little girl on the bottom for baby guess like has no fucking clue she is standing next to a boy.

The Perrier commercial below dates back to the 70's! Perrier's interactive website project, The Perrier Mansion, is pretty damn man's fantasy, too.

Messerschmidt's Heads

Eerily contemporary art from the 1700s. Speculation says this bust series is the physical manifestation of the artist's struggle with schizophrenia.

Short documentary- click through.

Danse Serpentine by Loie Fuller

Caught this video at Moma last year. Just found it online. Exceptionally beautiful and captivating. At the exhibit, I just fell under it's spell, eyes fixed in time with a motion captured in another time. At some point, I realized I had become the subject of speculation. Someone who had been watching me with a fascination stepped into my field of vision, eyes still on me before turning to Danse Serpentine, joining me in stillness while museum visitors flooded around us.
