Jody Sweitzer – Mine is the Color of 5: Adventures of a Waxing Personae
Jody Sweitzer has been experimenting through video installation, the emotionally bounded issues surrounding the “private vs. public” concept. By creating spaces that blatantly expect the participant to climb into awkward positions to view her video installations, she attempts to push the boundaries that define “acceptable” voyeurism. While becoming a participant in one of Jody’s installations, the viewer is forced to face their own desires of being a voyeur, and the taboos that surrounding voyeurism. The end result is sexually driven and darkly humorous.
