"Shit Art Kids Do", by Melissa Soleski, 2012,video,02’06

My intention was to create a spoof video on the life of an art student. The meme that I have loosely worked off of is “Shit Girls Say”, although I further elaborated on my satire by also making the video a silent movie. The film juxtaposes the banality and boredom that can be associated with student life with the sometimes strange and surreal experience of art school, such as the students being exposed to performance art. The film also explores the fun that can be had in playing pranks on one another, along with the innate exhaustion that accompanies the student life.
Through the clichéd technique of black and white footage and circus music, I sought out to highlight the circus atmosphere of art school.
