How I Taught My Dress To Act
This novel is a project which investigates the themes of domesticity, celebrity, reprisal and substitution through the remediation of cinema. The text invokes the tension between fiction and autobiography, narrative and commentary, the personal and private, and focuses on gathering narrative fragments - dropped stitches that establish their own pattern. Glamorous Freak is divided into three sections (with accompanying digital photographs) which are imagined structurally as a triptych, with the centerpiece comprised film studies which were written in an attempt to reconcile the pleasure of watching with the distance of critique.
