As described on my currently page, this project is a result of sewing a quick Halloween costume, that ended up producing a video, stills from video as their own formal images, and developed images taken on a film camera, which was the original intended first step ( post - sewing ). I took the photos on orthochromatic film which is safe under red light and darkens any red in the images, so my lipstick would look almost black! Essentially, a post-graduation accidental project for fun.
