M O L T
"MOLT" is a short film project centered around a costume I built a few months prior. The intent of the costume was to desexualize the female form, created an oversaturated, sexual monster that is repelling rather than attracting.
The film showcases a body wearing a the "desexualizing-device" and an oversized men's suit. The figure slowly walks into frame and enters their home, clearly exhausted from the day and takes off their "mask".
The intent was to display what women, and particularly women of color, go to the lengths to achieve invisibility or disguise in order to feel safe in public spaces, and the burnout of these efforts.
