While I have a great appreciation for the trigger-edit style that some artists use to produce video, I find it to be used most commonly with imagery that drips with machismo - porn, explosions, horror flicks - to create a highly offensive fast-paced barrage of media.

This video is a sort of experiment, to see if I could create a work using classic hollywood shots of women in the same way to deconstruct the iconic stature of the starlet in western cinema.
