I acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land upon which I live and work, and pay respects to all first nations elders past present and future.

Whelmed 

Olympia Kotopoulos and Michael Smith

Created as part of Phluxus2's IndepenDANCE project in 2016. Whelmed sought to take its histories, discourses and manifestations from 21st century pop music videos. Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Furgy, Rhianna and Kesha music videos were extrapolated to place on the self, where we attempted to abstract, connect and intricately source intimate and personalised moments from glorified, hyper-pop foundations.
