That made me LOL (and I so needed it today,) but it is actually incredibly disturbing at the same time. So many of the "poses" either mimic sexual positions, or make the person look like they are dead. I think that probably says alot.
I had to switch it off it made me all clammy and breathless. I hate stuff that like where the general public are 'fooled'. I hated Candid Camera et al as a child. The one where the lady looked a bit dead on the floor really upset me and I had to fast forward through that one.
I thought it was awesome! Great concept, could have done with a little tweaking. The poses chosen were not the greatest. I feel it may have got a completely different reaction if actual models had posed. I did something similar at uni last year, where I filmed a friend just sitting in the middle of the pavement. Anyone that approached my friend was given a business card with a number and the words 'text me'. I had fun reply to these texts!
I agree they draw attention because they are still - but I think that what the artist has done is draw attention to how vulnerable and/or unnatural and twisted a lot of the body poses in female fashion are, and how stupid they make a normal body look. I think if models had done the poses they would have got a reaction but it would have been a different reaction - we would have understood it more as an advertising image. The poses look unfamiliar on older, shorter women. The one of her lying in the flowerbed is deeply disturbing, but then why are there so many fashion images that make a woman look like she's been left for dead?
