This #FridayFunday I want to shed light on a creative event that took place in South Florida and combined the artistic talents of several creatives from the area through Venom Vision. This event challenges your perception and preconceived notions. By the end of the short film, you realize how often we subtly judge others simply based on appearance
In the likeness of the discoveries from Philip Zimbardo's Stanford Prison experiment, VENOMVICTIMS critiques the power of clothing psychology in a humorous light. While Stanford college volunteers became eerily committed to their designated role-play of guards and prisoners, characters of different cultural backgrounds make choices based on clothing role-play in VENOMVICTIMS.
For this blog post, I have a recap of the festivities so you can regret missing such a free-spirited event which can be viewed below.
Then there'es the full film that you can view to put my allegations to the test.
Our clothes are costumes. We judge one another based on what is being worn and the different hats that we wear. Notice when you run into your professor or religious leader in public and think: “they own jeans?” Or when you put on reading glasses and are complemented with: "you look smart!" Such is the power of the first theme, projection, as illustrated by clothing psychology. The second theme, nondiscriminatory romance, is then illustrated by varied musical genres. Every relationship is a different world, a different song.
If you want to make it interesting - every time the main character ( a young lady with box braids) walks through the museum take note of what type of person you think she is based on what she looks like and see if you were right.
Check out the full film below and leave your comments and assumptions at the end of this article!
