about 2faced1.com

2FACED1.com shows one persons two different faces in photos;

Persona 1:
WHAT YOU WANT TO BE
CONSIDERED AS

Persona 2:
WHAT YOU FEAR TO BE
CONSIDERED AS

This leads to a discussion about stereotypes and inner fears of getting misunderstood by the surroundings. Thoughts that every thinking modern day person does reflect upon. We're asking every day people from an innercity context where old categories as ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexuality and class are reassessed, why they choose to look like they do. We’re diggin' deep, peeling off garments, codes and attributes. We’re searching for transnational identities - is the conclusion that we choose whoever we want to be today?!

 

A 2FACED1 STATE OF MIND

A 2FACED1 is highly aware of existing stereotypes related to your own ethnicity, color, nationality, gender, sexual orientation and class. You’re trying to avoid them but sometimes also play with them to make people think twice about who you are. Two faced doesn’t mean anything negative here, it explains the double folded view you have on identity if you’re not the existing norm. Self awareness is a gift, because it also helps you to understand other peoples situations better. To be a 2FACED1 is to have the feet in different worlds, be able to move between them but feel rather at home in that space in between. You've stepped out of your comfort zone and has become one of the new identities where ol' categories are mashed up and rootlessness and non-given identity just means major possibilities.

In Interview: MADONNA

Post date Tue 4 May 2010 9:45 AM

Just the same day I did yestersays post i found this new really ineresting interview with MADONNA herself done by old friend and director GUS VAN SANT! So we get to know what's in her head right now! She's getting emmotionel too, I recommend you go READ it here

"But you know, what the movie (MILK w. SEAN PENN by Gus) triggered for me was all my early days in New York and the scene that I came up in-you know, with Andy Warhol and Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat and Kenny Scharf. It was just so alive with art and politics and this wonderful spirit. So many of those people are dead now. I think that's one of the reasons I cried."

The Photography is made by amazing Marcus Piggott and Mert Alas, and I really like what they did with all the references to classic Madonna photos both in style and photos! There's been some photoshopping going on - ofcourse, but choosing good lightening and Black/White it doesn't feel all crazy.

 

 

Dear Madge

Post date Mon 3 May 2010 7:47 AM

you, MADONNA could not yet be compered to any other artist we've seen. You MADE the game others are playing. Your artwork is not your music nor a particulary style, it's your whole career - NO other artist had/have ever done what you done. Do people understand what level of thinking of outside the box-ness that takes?! I sometimes imaging you, the most powerful woman in showbiz taking, another diraction after the Ray Of Light, but who can blame you for anything, you're out there on fields noone else ever entered, has NOONE to take guidance from. Hope your on writing your memoirs before you leave, I want to hear it with your words, see what really goes on in your mind. I'm not sure your story will end what we call "happy", but that's a view from a  common person that probably just don't got a clue, maybe you found that living forever exilir as the Renaissance woman you are. You, self creating Postmodern woman of shifting identities, the life of yours is hell of an ARTWORK it self, and maybe that's the way to get the best, and the most, out of that thingy we call l i f e.

Classic Item: Madonnas Desperately Seeking Susan Jacket

Post date Sat 27 Jun 2009 6:03 PM

Im still shaken by yesterdays news, reminiscing over our childhood hero, there is so many things to say but I'll be back on that later. We stay in the 80'ies but salutes one with style that's still alive: MDNA



That jacket with the all seeing eye on the back from the classic movie Desperately Seeking Susan 1985, was made by costume designer Santo Loquasto, who made two of them exclusively for this movie. Later one MTV had a big competition where viewers could win similar "Madona jackets", and even these jackets has been sold on Ebay for large amounts of money. I will do something similar when I get some of that sweet thing she sang about, H O L I D A Y!

*Also see this amazing making of
the Madonna Desperatly Seeking Susan Doll!
