STUDENT PROJECT BRIEF
Make different sequences within the theme of ‘climax’. I chose to focus on the concept of ‘orgasm’.

WHY DO YOU LIKE THIS PROJECT?
The image is about pop culture and the representation of sex. It’s a still of Madonna’s ‘Like a Virgin’ video clip that has been repeated only by zooming in. Nothing changes, but the repetition makes the story. The other image is a remake with a remake. A sex doll is photographed from the same perspective as Madonna in her clip, and that image is screenprinted on tiles, referring to traditional ‘Delftsblauwe’ tiles. Again, the repetition changes the representation and makes the vulgar images safe and normal.
Invitation to exhibit it at two external places.
PROJECT SIMILARITIES THEN AND NOW
