Recycling Scripts

‘Recycling Scripts’ employs a process of recycling and re-contextualising scripts, to challenge their ideology, composition, and effect.

I started using the princesses’ scripts from Disney animation films to communication with men on the dating app Tinder; testing the typical genderisation of the Disney princess story in the context of presentation of self and interaction in the online world. I have created an app which enables the user to perform identities on social network sites, cut and pasted directly from female characters; (both real and imagined) that trade on established gender roles, from the ‘empowered’ post-feminist politician Hilary Clinton to Marilyn Monroe,

‘the ultimate sex symbol for men’.
