    from Topless Topics Added 14K 133 13

    This video was originally created for the Topless Topics Youtube channel, hence the warning at the start. Consider this my test video for Vimeo! Here's the description from the Youtube upload: Don't forget to take bets on how many seconds this stays up before Youtube takes it down after deciding it's "pornographic!" I had more I wanted to say on this subject, but it was already getting too long and I actually had plans to do something today other than film and edit this video. Oh well. x.x Relevant links: "Geek Feminism Wiki" description of Trigger Warning: http://geekfeminism.wikia.com/wiki/Trigger_warning Urban Dictionary's definition: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Trigger+warning The Spine from Steam Powered Giraffe's blog post "Just another reminder..." http://davidmichaelbennett.tumblr.com/post/55670805355/just-another-reminder (again, David is an awesome and caring person.

              • 5min excerpt - Still Life - Israel Eats Itself


                from T_W Added

                Performance in 5.1 surround sound installation was documented with surveillance cam and super8 to make this video. Soundscape incorporates an interview with a PTSD afflicted veteran of 5 Israeli wars. Both he and The State are 60 years old. The imagery references Goya's black paintings, and the Chassidic concept of 'klippah', the shell that both nourishes the physical world and gives it its shape, while necessitating its own shedding in order to access truth. The male human body in this piece is an analogue to landscape, land occupation, and 'Holy Land', to interrogate concepts of kinship and nation state.
