She… was an online narrative collaging fact and fiction. Juxtaposing seven short stories with news sites featuring women in the headlines, the work explored different female archetypes represented by the media.
Bringing together actual news stories, with Youtube videos and fictional reflections each vignette played with our inherent tendency to read between the lines and embellish assumed facts with our own prejudices and desires. Through hyperlinks and a continuous soundscape, one protagonist’s tale cinematically flowed into another. What is revealed is a composite character, the ultimate ‘She’ who is the sum of her archetypes, and our mediatised fantasies.
The work no longer exists in its entirety due to the fact that Google and therefore Youtube, changed its policy and disallowed the use of frames to access its services. You can see its remaining traces here.
