Carson: Day Three

Carson’s light summer dress blew up on the way to the shoot. She shows us what happened, flashing her lacy black panties and navel. For some reason, she doesn’t like her legs. We think they’re beautiful. She pulls the dress over her head.

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.
