Fonso (2007)

by Matteo

Can something that looks like a music video be considered art? I think so. I created this piece to juxtapose a classical operatic soundtrack with the visuals of a seductive and provocative dancer set in a completely mirrored geodesic dome. It is the music that seems to justify her beauty and actions. When it is paired with say a Rock and Roll soundtrack, the viewer’s judgments of the performer is that of a women of ill repute. This link provides the alternate soundtrack:
