{Love, Parafactually} Is creative labor a performance? | Zhiyi Cao

{Love, Parafactually} Is creative labor a performance? | Zhiyi Cao

{Love, Parafactually} Is creative labor a performance? | Zhiyi Cao

Parafactual narratives is content that treats reality as if it’s fiction - or perhaps, living reality FOR the camera, in constant anticipation of how it can be edited and inserted into a narrative arc, hyperstitially performing itself as linear reality... In this episode, video artist Zhiyi Cao and host Yi Jing Fly talks digitisation and fictionalisation in the context of art, covering trends of living the lock-down life through avatars; and use Zhiyi’s works to examine the creative labor of art.

Trims, DIY fashion, and AR filters | Daniela Monasterios Tan

Trims, DIY fashion, and AR filters | Daniela Monasterios Tan

In today’s episode of Framing Visual Culture, I speak with fashion curator and lecturer Daniela Monasterios on trims, DIY fashion, and AR filters. Daniela is currently working on an experimental fashion exhibition with artist Stephanie J Burt, titled “A Stubborn Bloom.” This exhibition explores femininity through material culture and “feminine” tropes in films such as The Virgin Suicides and Marie Antoinette by Sofia Coppola and Picnic on Hanging Rock by Peter Weir. In preparation for the exhibition, Daniela has been collecting antique items and trims of lace, ribbons, or gloves from women who inherited these items from their grandmothers. In this episode, we delve into the idea of using trims as a form of fashioning one’s own identity, adding some personal touch and flavour to their outfits, be it rococo fashion or on the streets of Harajuku in the 90s, or today with AR filters over our faces. You can follow Daniela's podcast @inthevitrine and her exhibition updates @a_stubborn_bloom on Instagram!
