Here's the theme for a series of quirky art videos to go on a dedicated blog (I'm thinking Tumblr):
A woman will provide some text for me. I'll read whatever it says and then she throws a custard pie in my face.
There are two main objectives of the videos. I must begin by being honest and confessing that this is a little bit of a kink of mine. Secondly, many people feel that for generations women have been denied a 'voice' in art, and this would be an amusing mouthpiece for women to express themselves. As much as possible, I would be anonymous - my voice would be altered, my face would be obscured, and even my name is 'anonymous'.
The brief above is just the basic format for each video, but it can be developed however the participants see fit. I can wear whatever you'd like, including being nude or in fancy dress; it can be filmed in different locations; I can be doing something, or nothing, rather than talking; more (or fewer!) than one person can be involved; and even the pie itself isn't crucial (no pies? More pies? Custard instead? Something different happens?).
Contributors can also remain anonymous or can accompany the video with either a recorded or written explanation of their thinking.
I'll try and use whatever ideas I get without alteration or too much editorial control (although sometimes feasibility may change what's possible - I'd discuss this first).
Only rules are: participants must be female and the video should be under five minutes.
