Brief Description of Work:

Hot Under the Collar is an experimental video that examines the imagery of the Kodak "Shirley" test patterns. An examination of the “male gaze”, the evolution of film and video, and obvious formal considerations constitute the foundation for Hot Under the Collar. The “Shirley” test patterns are disappearing as film and video evolve, and this video is a homage to all that these iconic women represent to the history of the cinema.
