39 Steps Until Disappearance

A photographic experiment using sequential imagery and performance-for-the-camera in an attempt to harness affect. The performance explores feminism as a linear narrative by emphasizing movement through time and space.

The images refer to the act of undressing, and the casting off of the heavy coat signifies a rejection of the patriarchal constructs of femininity while subtly referencing the fashion industry’s perpetuation of this construct. After the coat is discarded, the viewer is left with the uncovered woman, but eventually even she disappears and only the coat remains.
