Tuesday, December 7th
5pm - 8pm

In Projections, Power, and Desire, Divine Princess B examines ways in which body, mind, and persona are contorted, manipulated, and changed, especially in this digital age. Throughout life, the way Princess B has perceived his body and identity has been greatly influenced and pressured by social media, western cultural standards of beauty, topic masculinity, gender norms, Anglo-Saxon Christianity, and by decision-making individuals holding power. As the world continues to be saturated with images, social media, celebrity, advertisements, news and media outlets, Princess B questions who is given power, and how that authoritative power classifies individuals, objects, and ideals as important, whereby elevating these things in value, cultural perception, and desirability. How does one recognize the blurred line of distinction between one's own desires and the desires of the propagandistic?

With appropriated images and videos found on the web, source materials are collected. These source materials were selected from media that was populated on different search engines from various key words (example: "pretty eyes, sexy body, perfect lips"). Once selected, source imagery was digitally cut, received digital enhancements, and then collaged. By using a video projector to project the newly created imagery onto Princess B's body, or into physical existence, Princess B recontextualizes these fragmented images that have been deemed beautiful and ideal.
