Amandine Alessandra, photographer and graphic designer, has created Wearable Lettering, a series that (apparently) argues for free speech (because you can avoid a tax on advertising if you make your body a “mobile message display.”) Besides that, using the human body as a display can make art into performance pieces, especially when a bunch of people get together.
I get the message but I’m not really into the pieces unfortunately. You have to watch the video to see them in action and read the premises behind them to really get it, I suppose. That’s just me though-some interesting experiments are described/shown on the website (Always Salt.) They do say something and they do have thought behind them. They are a comment on our world and who we are. They do take language and mingle it with art and there are some fun pieces-WOW, for example and I like Maîtresse-but I just can’t put any emotion into my perception of the projects as a whole.
