Carson: Day One

Carson is a quietly spoken, very pretty girl from small-town Michigan. She’s been in New York only a month — but is already dating — and she’s launching her new city life by doing Slow Exposure.

Bree: Day Two

We talk about what Bree’s wearing — it’s clear she’s wearing a very low-cut top — and then about her art practice. She’s a painter and a video/photo artist, recently engaged with “alternative porn.” That sounds like something we should ask about. She also has nice things to say about Slow Exposure: “What I took away was — a nude woman and…”

Diamond: Day Four

Diamond is topless but holding her top in front of her breasts as we talk about the way she’s reclaiming the word “boyfriend” – it’s a tattoo. Then we discuss the hints of nudity in her video work, and compare her attitudes to nakedness with other woman performance artists like Marina Abramovic and Laurel Nakadate. She drops the top.

Diamond: Day Two

We spend most of today talking about a Push Pops action at Governor’s Island last summer where Diamond and her collaborators did aerobics for three straight days around a pile of mouldering bagels. Before easing out of her leggings, Diamond confirms she is wearing underwear, but we learn she doesn’t like to wear a bra and doesn’t have one on.

Diamond: Day One

We were really pleased when Diamond asked to be part of Slow Exposure. She’s a video artist – she prefers “video sculptor” – and her works on line show her using her body for artistic ends: sexual, satirical, political. Although she’s been willing to dress down for video works involving aerobics or blazing away at a video screen with a toy gun, she hasn’t been nude. She will be, for Slow Exposure. You’ll also hear how she reconciles it with her radical feminism.

Rose: Day Five

“Stepping outside of the box” is how Rose describes her participation in Slow Exposure. This segment begins with her holding one hand closely over her private parts as she pulls her panties down. And then we finally see everything.
