Folie à Plusieurs


The madness of many barbed dolls – this 12-month long series of film photographs of plastic dolls represents me in various scenarios, forms, circumstances, and aspects. All dolls, specifically named, were intentionally photographed naked, and sometimes even physically deformed, to illuminate the transparency and truth of my adventures and misadventures as I struggle, triumph, and wait for chances, people, and time to pass me by. Different 35mm films and cameras were used and varied grains, hues, and vignettes resulted. Collectively, all of these depict a year-long process of anticipating, persevering, and waiting.

In parallel to my handwritten compositions (touch-typed in each link below), I painstakingly narrated my emotions and experiences (which were oftentimes real and sometimes in reverie) using parchment and black ink. In one way or the other, my personalities are projected to the dolls and each of them signifies my personality as a young adult who, like many others, is searching for her soul.

01. Ten Minutes After Ten
02. Cadaveric Spasms
03. Call for Help Scenes
04. Frail Fragments
05. Double Entendre
06. Else and More
07. Oh, a gentle thing!
08. Slow-Motion Replay
09. Delightful Ever So
10. Anatomical Parts
11. Sore Sentiments
12. She Hardly Executes
