I found this fascinating little short film on Jafabrit’s blog. It’s by Andy Huang and is called “Doll Face”.
I have been thinking lots about society and how we trudge through life, aspiring to be like everyone else, and wanting to be accepted by all. So you can see why the “Doll Face” film would click with me at the moment.
I may be biased, but I think artists are the least like sheep of all people. We try to challenge norms and put mirrors in front of insanity. For this we are labeled “weird” or “nonconformist”, like it is a bad thing. In a society that was open to change, I doubt an artist like Banksy would be seen as a bad boy.. he would probably be a great political leader in a world that wasn’t afraid of mirrors.
That’s my rant for the week.. I feel better now
Here’s the creator Andy Huang’s website.
