Barbie Grotesk Mord (2009)

With text based on excerpts of girl's weblogs and various websites, the 10' lenght digital video aims to narrate the story of a girl who decides to submit to cosmetic surgery after the end of her relationship. Doing wide use of the glitch aesthetics on video, text and sound (electronic music was composed by Serbian music artist Manovski, pioneer of Balkan glitch), the movie explores the fields on vanity, self-esteem and emotional conflict on an era where deviance can also be interpreted as glitch.
