Earlier this year I was invited to share a manifesto at the Tate Museum in London as part of the Gender Talents show. I couldn’t make it, so I made a video with Basil Shadid to capture some of the themes of Normal Life. The Barnard Center for Research on Women just released the video on their website.
The images in it go by quickly so I also made an annotated slideshow that you can watch at your own pace and learn what the images depict. You can also watch the video on youtube to see a version with captions (press CC).
While I was gathering images for the film I got completely stumped a couple times about how to illustrate certain ideas. Two artists came to my rescue and created powerful images that I needed.
