her body (a wunderkammer)

her body (a wunderkammer)

I made this video for a class I took about alternative texts. We were studying Shelley Jackson’s hypertext piece “My Body – A Wunderkammer” which is an exploration into Jackson’s own body and the memories associated with different organs; stories of broken bones, her fascination with breasts after flipping through Playboy as a kid, using a pocket dictionary as a tampon. I made this video inspired by the piece, but asked my friends to participate instead. I asked them not to spare any gory details, so as to honor Jackson’s unabashed candor in challenging narrow definitions of femininity.
