And the concept behind the video, written by Katie:
‘She plays feminine. He plays masculine. She plays feminine because he plays masculine. He plays masculine because she plays feminine.’
"Gender is a multi-layered experience – both hyper-personal and necessarily communal. It is worn for comfort, layered for protection, flaunted in a show of self. It is stripped off when a poor fit, stitched to hide inconsistencies and ever-consumed, debated and derided by those who encounters its mystique. This video plays on this relationship, layering one myth over another to create a self-explorative interaction. Never does one soul encompass all that is feminine or all that is masculine. She merges the two. Sees herself through the lens of the other. Happily blurs their distinction. Indeed, she plays masculine as much as she plays feminine."
