The body is an evolving system, built of parts subsumed from their surrounds.
VALERIE is an animated typographic music video exploring the themes of body dysmorphia and the changing perception of self through a gender non-conforming lens. It tackles these ideas through the interpretation of the body as a vessel, a shifting program characterised by thoughts and experiences of self identity expressed in violent, abrasive type and image.
